Community Forum on affordable housing will be Oct. 30 at Madrona School


A Community Forum called ‘Coming Together to Discuss Affordable Housing and Growth in Southwest King County’ will be held at the Madrona Elementary School cafeteria on Monday, Oct. 3, from 6 – 7:45 p.m.

Here’s more info:

Rapidly rising rents and the loss of affordable housing have hit families in our region hard, especially low income, working class, and immigrant families. As parents and children suffer the stress and turmoil from the fear of becoming homeless and being forced from our community; our teachers and other educators struggle to support them through these traumas. Yet when “stakeholders” convene to address these issues, those facing the greatest threat of displacement and their community educators are typically excluded from the discussion because these events typically occur while they are working.

On the evening of October 30th, please join Educators, Community Members, and Concerned Citizens as we look for ways to support children and their families living at the Firs Mobile Home Park and members of other communities like them.  Madrona Elementary School will be open for a community forum that brings together residents, educators, activists, housing groups, area business owners with their elected officials to discuss how the lack of affordable housing and growing home displacements are changing our communities.  Please come listen, learn, and help find solutions that draw upon the wisdom of our resilient residents and area experts.

This Community Forum will be held on October 30 from 6:00-7:45 in the Madrona School cafeteria located at 20301 32nd Ave S SeaTac.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.  Childcare and snacks will be provided.

The Highline Education Association (HEA), your local educator union, is pleased to support this event.

Your participation in this important conversation is strongly desired and encouraged.

Madrona Elementary School is located at 20301 32nd Ave S.:
