Voices of Democracy Gala

The League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County is excited to invite you to our inaugural Voices of Democracy Gala, celebrating the League's mission of encouraging informed, active, and engaged participation in our democracy.

Come meet our Making Democracy Work Award winners, individuals and organizations who have raised their voices to make King County a welcoming, diverse, and dynamic place to live. In this past year, our membership has grown as more people look to the League's leadership on voting, public policy, and good government.

We hope you will join us to celebrate the League's mission and enjoy a fun evening with new friends, community leaders, and others who share your commitment to democracy.

Forum: How Do We Get to Zero Youth Detention in King County?

Didn't make it to the forum? Watch online.
King County’s plans to build a new juvenile justice center with 112 detention cells have drawn opposition from many community members who feel that it perpetuates institutionalized racism and shifts the focus away from eliminating youth detention altogether. The League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County invites you to a free public forum to hear perspectives on all sides of this important issue.

Panelists include:
• Terri Stewart (Moderator), Director of the Youth Chaplaincy Coalition
• Dominique Davis, co-founder and CEO of Community Passageways
• Ari Kohn, President, Post-Prison Education Network
• King County Superior Court Judge Laura Inveen
• King County Superior Court Judge Wesley Saint Clair

Thursday, April 6 at 7 p.m.
First Baptist Church, 1111 Harvard Avenue (at Seneca Street), Seattle
