Year of Remembrance: Glimpses of a Forever Foreigner

On display February 17, 2017 – February 11, 2018

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which resulted in the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans. They were charged with no crime. The cause of their imprisonment was their ancestry.

This exhibition recognizes the 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066, and explores historic and contemporary issues of racism, discrimination and human rights.

About the Scholarship program:

Every year Hispanic Seafair selects one deserving role-model in the community as Miss Hispanic Seafair, based on her academics, community involvement, public speaking abilities and other essential skills. She’s awarded with an academic scholarship to continue her studies, and a year filled with networking and career opportunities. In an effort to provide more scholarship and increase our community presence at Seafair and community events year round, Hispanic Seafair has opted to grant a scholarship to two different well-deserving young women.

Latino Community Fund is proud to offer fiscal sponsorship to Hispanic Seafair. LCF cultivates new leaders, supports cultural and community based non-profit organizations, and improves the quality of life for all Washingtonians. To achieve our mission and address the needs of Latinos, LCF programs create a vibrant community through civic engagement, healthy families, arts and culture. We offer fiscal sponsorship to organizations and programs in various development phases. Through this capacity building, LCF provides technical assistance, leadership development, and fundraising support to programs and organizations that provide value to the Latino community in our state.

Seattle/Olympia Authentic Leadership Community of Practice
Jul 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm


Dear Friends,

I trust this note finds you well. It’s a little more than two weeks since 100 practitioners (many of whom were new to ALIA) came together at the ALIA2017 Summer Leadership Intensive at PLU. Here’s one of the harvests from the SLI, created by our incredible Harvest Team:
Now we’ve turned our attention once again to our continuing local practice.  As one of the co-hosts of our Seattle/Olympia Authentic Leadership Community of Practice (CoP), I’d like to invite you to attend our next Seattle/Olympia CoP “joint gathering” on July 29th, from 9-4 at the 2100 Building in Seattle, WA. Our joint gatherings are an opportunity to learn more about ALIA and check out our CoP. If you wish to join (no obligation!) following this experience, you can sign up as a member (there’s an annual fee), and participate in monthly meetings in Seattle or Olympia. This really is an ongoing practice of learning and connection.
Space is limited on July 29, so if you’d like to attend please register via this Eventbrite link. Cost for guests is $10 at the door. Please sign up no later than July 23rd so we can plan accordingly for food and set up. If you can’t make this event but have some curiosity about ALIA and the CoP, let me know and we can make time for a conversation.

Train the Trainer: Strategies for Facilitating Conversations on Race
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am – Aug 11 @ 4:30 pm


Thursday, August 10th – Friday, August 11th

The 2100 Building
2100 24th Avenue South
Seattle, WA 98144

8:30am Check-in & light breakfast
9:00am-4:30pm Workshop

Through engaging and interactive exercises, you’ll learn helpful strategies and tips on how to successfully present sensitive information to a wide audience of learners. You will develop skills to take difficult conversations about race, privilege and power to a deeper level and learn strategies for working with resistance. The two-day workshop will give you time to practice applying the strategies in a variety of scenarios.

Both experienced and novice trainers are encouraged to attend and will learn new tools. However, participants in this workshop should have awareness of your own biases, privileges and internalized oppression, as well as some knowledge of institutional racism and white privilege in the United States. The more personal work you have done to understand these issues, the more you will get out of this workshop as a facilitator.

The skills developed in this two-day intensive are valuable for individuals who want to further equity work in their communities.  Organizations committed to instituting systemic change will also benefit by training a cohort of internal trainers to provide on-going, culturally relevant professional development for staff.

Participants in this workshop receive a free copy of our Train the Trainer workbook, filled with take-away resources and valued at $32.00.

Participants will…

  •     Gain tips for creating a welcoming environment.
  •     Learn ways to establish credibility and build relationships with participants.
  •     Identify your own triggers and learn strategies to engage people when they are triggered.
  •     Develop skills for handling common pitfalls and resistance.
  •     Explore different dynamics for facilitators of color and white facilitators.
  •     Cultivate the ability to address cultural tensions and conflict.
  •     Notice and address common expressions of white privilege in workshop dynamics.

Caprice D. Hollins, Psy.D. & Ilsa Govan, M.A.

How is this different from the “Activities for Trainers” workshop?

In this workshop, you will receive our book, while the other workshop comes with a complementary flash drive with resources.

Bridge Conference 2017

Registration Now Live

The premier conference for expanded learning professionals in the Pacific Northwest is returning to the University of Washington October 16 & 17, 2017!

Our theme this year is Together We Rise. What does it take for young people to thrive? Creating inclusive environments for young people goes beyond offering fun enrichment and quality academic supports. Young people also need places where they can heal wounds created by exclusion and inequity. Young people need tools and supports to empower them to become change agents.

Together We Rise means programs, communities and families work together to advocate for inclusive programs. We will ensure young people are not just resilient, but are self-aware; not just leaders, but thoughtful individuals invested in their futures and the future of their communities. Highlighted sessions include community organizing, engaging families, being a change agent within our programs and communities.

Stay tuned for keynote and workshop session announcements later this spring.
