Our first Resist/Recharge event with SOMOS.

Our first Resist/Recharge event with SOMOS.

Free Thursday evening? Swing by St. John’s Bar and Eatery on Capitol Hill for the fourth installment of Resist/Recharge, The Stranger‘s series of talks with community leaders and nonprofits opposed to President Trump’s agenda. We’ve chatted with SOMOS (empowering LGBTQ Latinx youth), Northwest Harvest (feeding the hungry) and Greenpeace (protecting the environment).

This week, we’re hosting not one, but two great organizations. Both are focused on developing young leaders of color. Based out of the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, the nonprofit Langston works with black youth to advance local African American arts and culture. 21 Progress assists young leaders, particularly immigrants, through programs like internships and a loan service for youth eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Together, we’ll talk about how Seattle can best empower black and brown youth in the age of Trump. Guest speakers will include Mozart Guerrier, Inye Wokoma, Marissa Vichayapai, Vivian Phillips, Devan Rogers, and Sheley Secrest. I’ll be moderating.

Don’t miss it.
