Upcoming Events

SWaC is sponsoring another Walk-Out, this time in coalition with the University of Washington. Taking place on December 14th, students will leave their schools at 2:00 pm (time subject to change by school, see Facebook Event for Details) and walk down to the University of Washington's Red Square. Students from Nathan Hale, Roosevelt, Garfield, and Ballard are encouraged to attend, but anyone is invited to come protest at the U.

SWaC is also hosting an educational meeting at Garfield High School. This 'teach-in' will have speakers such as James Bible, head of the Washington Chapter of the NAACP. The event will have refreshments, and will be preceded by a letter writing event where you will be encouraged to write letters to your State Legislators. This meeting is on Monday, December 12th from 3:30 to 5:30. While this is a student oriented event, parents are welcome to come as well.

On the topic of letters, SWaC is sponsoring a few events at local high schools specifically for the purpose of writing letters to Legislators. Nathan Hale High School is hosting an event starting at 3:00. Ballard High School is hosting an event from 2:30 to 4:00. Both of these events are being held at their respective schools' commons.

Every one of these events will be an amazing time for students to get involved in the democratic process. Everyone is encouraged to attend, so please feel free to show up at any of these events!!!
