Raise Your Voice with Solid Ground!
Join us at our 18th Annual Building Community Luncheon, presented by Verizon. During this inspiring afternoon, we will share our work to end poverty and oppression and honor the experiences of our program participants. You are invited to work with us and raise your own voice for justice, equity and compassion!
Keynote Speaker: Ijeoma Oluo
Ijeoma Oluo is a Seattle-based writer, speaker and Internet yeller on issues of race, feminism and social justice. Her work has been featured in The Guardian, The Stranger, The Washington Post, TIME Magazine and more. She is the Editor at Large at The Establishment. Her book, So You Want to Talk About Race, was published in January 2018 by Seal Press. (No ticket price, but a minimum $150 donation will be asked at the event.)
New this year, the After Party is a unique twist on our traditional post-Luncheon meet and greet with the keynote speaker. Join us from 6-9pm on the evening of the Luncheon for live music, drinks, small bites and an in-depth conversation on race and poverty in Seattle with Ijeoma Oluo and Marcus Green, editor-in-chief and co-founder of the South Seattle Emerald.
