Lessons in Solidarity

April 27 @ 3:00 pm  –  5:00 pm

Join us for a virtual gathering with former leaders of the Minority Executive Directors Coalition (MEDC), a multicultural collaborative founded in 1982 to give voice to Seattle’s people of color communities. Panelists include: Cheryl Cobbs, Estela Ortega, Josephine Tamayo Murray, Larry Gossett, Richard Mar, and Theresa Fujiwara.

Through this conversation, we’ll hear about the genesis and journey of the coalition to advance racial and economic justice.

  • What were the relationships among members and with the community? 
  • How did they learn to navigate differences? 
  • What were lessons in collaboration?

We hope you’ll participate in learning about the power of BIPOC solidarity in shaping today’s advocacy for equity and justice.

All BIPOC leaders in the nonprofit sector are welcome to register for the event. We encourage you to share this event with your network.
