Come together as a community of faith for this powerful action at 9 am, Monday, April 10, at Howard S. Wright headquarters (415 1st Ave N, Seattle WA 98109). European Dissent, in solidarity with Ending the Prison Industrial Complex (EPIC), coordinates a brief ecumenical worship service outside Howard S. Wright’s corporate headquarters. The 9 am Christian liturgy calls attention to the ways we, voters of King County, allowed powerful corporate interests to use taxpayer money for a new Youth Jail (“Children and Family Justice Center”) in the Central District instead of investing in alternatives to detention in local communities.
Jews Undoing Institutional Racism (JUIR) – a multiracial group of Jewish anti-racist organizers, also in collaboration with European Dissent and in solidarity with EPIC, will lead a modified Passover Seder ritual at 10 am to reflect on our modern form of slavery – the Prison Industrial Complex – and how Jewish tradition calls us to continue challenging power toward the liberation of all peoples.
Gather at 8:45 am across the street (in front of Key Arena) with information tables, flyers and snacks. All are invited for a public, interfaith coffee hour to follow our action. For more information, contact Claire West: firstname.lastname@example.org.Subscribe
