Womxn’s History Month Panel: Resilience, Power and Healing

March 30, 2022 @ 11:45 am  –  1:15 pm

This event is co-hosted by the King County Equity and Social Justice Legislative Branch Team and the County’s Women’s Advisory Board.

Over the past several years, we have witnessed women here and throughout the world step into their power and demonstrate an incredible amount of resilience in the face of complex challenges. For each person, that power and resilience have looked different — including caregiving, running for office, advocating for their community, just trying to make it through relatively unscathed, and everything in between.

Moderated by Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles, the King County Council’s Womxn’s History Month Panel will be livestreamed on Facebook and King County TV.

BIPOC ED Coalition co-founder, Victoria Santos, will serve as one of the panelists along with the following women leaders:
– Karen Arlette Gamez Lopez, Immigrant Rights Advocate and Community Organizer, Career Pathways Navigator for the WA Department of Children, Youth, and Families
– Commissioner Toshiko Hasegawa, Port of Seattle Position 4
– Cherryl Jackson-Williams, Family and Community Engagement Advocate, Member of King County Districting Committee
– Councilmember Sarah Perry, King County Council District 3
