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.

Future of NAFTA- What does it mean for working people, migration and the planet?

Aug 22, 2017
12 PM PST/2:00 PM CST/3 PM EST
President Trump has pledged to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a corporate trade deal that many labor, environmental, immigrant, and community groups raised serious concerns about when it was first signed nearly 25 years ago. Unfortunately, many of our concerns about NAFTA have proven right as polluters have undermined labor and environmental protections, working people from the US, Canada, and Mexico have suffered, and climate change has worsened. As we feared, the results have fed increasing insecurity and displacement, including forcing millions of small producers to leave their homes, communities, and families. But the latest call for “renegotiation” could well result an even worse deal for our communities. We need a new approach to trade and regional integration that serves the needs of healthy communities everywhere.

Join our webinar on August 22 to learn more and how to take action.

FACILITATION SKILLS FUNDAMENTALS
SEPTEMBER 15TH, 8:3OAM-12:30PM in Seattle

One of the most important skills of an effective community leader is the ability to facilitate group discussions and help groups make decisions together in a way that engages the voices of everyone in the group.  Too often, we get thrown into the role of facilitator without having been taught the fundamentals and/or had a chance to practice.  In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to both learn and practice the fundamentals in a fun, interactive, and non-threatening environment.

Leadership Practices
September 26th, 2017
12:30pm-4:30pm

Waiting for the bus. Shopping for groceries. Attending events. We see our neighbors and coworkers, but how well do we understand and connect with each other? Although we are living side-by-side, our experiences with these common activities can differ significantly based on our social memberships. In many ways we live in parallel universes with different realities often separated along demographic lines.

What does it mean to be a whole community, and what does it take to build it in an ever-changing, siloed multicultural society? How is being a “holder of community” a vital role for leaders? What brings people together to collectively forge solutions to critical issues of our day?

This workshop considers those questions, as it explores the interface between leadership and community in a society both blessed and challenged by cultural difference. Using CEL’s framework for advancing social change in service of the common good, this workshop will explore leadership principles and practices that help build healthy, just, inclusive communities.

At Child Care Aware of Washington we are supporting the development of an outstanding child care and early learning system available to all of Washington’s children. As part of this important work we are thrilled to present our second Elevate Early Learning Conference Oct. 2 – 4, 2017 at the Tacoma Convention Center.

The Elevate Early Learning Conference brings together relationship-based practitioners, trainers, program administrators and policymakers to attend skill-building sessions and engage in cross-systems conversations to help them become stronger and more successful leaders. This year’s gathering will explore the importance of each person’s role in building an early learning system that addresses the opportunity gap, providing all children with a solid foundation for success in school and life. 2017 Elevate tracks include: Early Childhood Policy, Leadership Foundations, Coaching, Child Development and Professional Well-Being.

We are pleased to announce our 2017 Elevate Keynote speaker, Judy Jablon, educator and founder of Leading for Children, a nonprofit whose mission is to “infuse the field of early learning with optimism, leadership and coherence.” Her keynote address will focus on cross-systems collaboration to provide holistic support for the benefit of children.
