Seattle King County NAACP Demands South Seattle College Address Discrimination on Campus
Press Conference to Reveal Toxic Campus Culture
Seattle, WA--On Friday, February 19th, at 12:00pm, the Seattle King County NAACP will join with the Washington Federation of State Employees (WFSE), and South Seattle College employees to expose the harassment, discrimination, and bullying taking place on South Seattle College campus. Both the administration and the Human Resources Department have been alerted of our concerns, but have chosen to be complacent about their toxic campus culture.
While this press conference will be tailored to incidents at South Seattle College, the NAACP sees this as just one example of institutional racism playing out in our communities. We see similar trends and acts of discrimination taking place across our city--we're calling for a holistic solution to ensure that all institutions are held accountable to the communities they serve.
What: Press conference
When: Friday, February 19th at 12:00pm
Where: 6000 16th Ave. SW (on the northeast side of the street directly in front of the neon signs at the front entrance)
Who: Local NAACP leaders and employees of South Seattle College. Speakers include:
