How can life in Seattle improve as federal relief for COVID ends? The 2023 RSJI Summit will explore this question across two days.

Thursday, March 23: City of Seattle Staff Day | 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Employees from the City of Seattle will gather for a dynamic roster of hybrid (in person and virtual) racial equity workshops and mixers, as we dream solutions for a better Seattle with healing and belonging in mind as we forecast pandemic recovery.

Portions of this day will be livestreamed, including:

  • Keynote Speech from Dr. Ben Danielson
  • City of Seattle Updates
  • Food Sovereignty Presentation

Friday, March 24: Community Day | 4:00 - 7:30 PM

This event is a free livestream. You can find more details using the registration link below.

How can life in Seattle improve as federal relief for COVID ends? Join artists, activists, change makers, and city leaders in a chat about healing and belonging as we recover from COVID. Join the livestream for community updates, Q&A, and trivia.
