Celebrating diversity, working to end racism

Celebrating diversity, working to end racism

The Seattle Housing Authority is committed to promoting diversity, advancing race and social justice, and ending racism. As part of a larger community conversation, SHA is sharing an evolving selection of stories and resources compiled by our Race and Social Justice Initiative Committee, newsletter editors, community partners and others. We welcome contributions that deepen understanding, center the voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Color, and help develop anti-racist action among white people.
