Racism Is A Public Health Crisis Invites Community Members to Join the Gathering Collaborative
The Racism Is Public Health Crisis "Ambassadors & Amplifiers", leaders trusted from communities most harmed by systemic racism and colonialism, brought together by Abigail Echo-Hawk, Ben Danielson and King County Executive Dow Constantine (the co-chairs), invite additional members of the community to join The Gathering Collaborative.
The Gathering Collaborative is a group of community members that will take part in a community-led process to equitably spend $25 million of federal funds that starts to undo the harms of racism compounded by the pandemic, influence the County's next budget cycle, and establish a longer-term vision for King County to become an anti-racist government.
The Gathering Collaborative seeks community members who can uplift and share the wisdom of your community, center those most harmed by racism, and exercise Black and Indigenous Power. Members of the Gathering Collaborative will make a generational impact, build community-to-community capacity, and influence how King County becomes an anti-racist government.
