Seattle, WA  98101 Map

NWIRHC and Town Hall present
Displaced: Refugee Voices in Conversation

Refugees are forced to flee their home and country due to violence and persecution, and this history continues to inform their perspective for years to come. Opening comments at this event will be offered by Mherdad, a former refugee from Chad who works locally with World Relief. Hear from a panel of refugees, assembled by The Northwest Immigrant and Refugee Health Coalition (NWIRHC), about the way that the current political climate, and President Trump’s executive orders are affecting the refugee community. The panel will also discuss their experiences, both as former refugees and direct service providers for newly resettled families, as well as advocates for the millions of people who are currently in limbo, hoping to find a safe place for themselves and their families. Finally, panel members will give their perspective on how community members can engage with the issues discussed and turn the information learned in this conversation into action.
The panel will be moderated by Andrew Kritovich, a former refugee from Ukraine and Director of International Counseling and Community Services at Lutheran Community Services Northwest.

7:30PM, Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Doors open at 6:30PM. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Free event! Introduction by Iman Ali

Thursday, May 25 at 07:30PM

In Minneapolis’ large Somali refugee community, Adan has nowhere to go. His mom kicked him out, and his friends are tired of his headstrong ways. As a last resort, he moves into the mosque, praying for a little help. Surprisingly, God seems to answer. Adan quickly lands a good job, devout friends, and a newfound faith. When Adan nearly hits a stray dog on the job, he’s forced to take it in for a night. But one of his new mosque friends considers the dog impure, and he throws Adan out. With Adan back on the streets, surrounded by his old crew, ex-girlfriends, prying FBI agents, and his estranged family, the dog may be his only friend as he tries to keep his faith and get through the night.

"Abdirahman brings Adan to life with a magnetic camera presence and the rare gift of performing without seeming to act." – The Minneapolis Star Tribune

Tiny, Great Realities: personal cinema and the Filipino diaspora

Sunday May 28th - 3:00pm - Sunday May 28th - 4:30pm

SIFF Film Center
305 Harrison Street
Seattle, WA  98109 Map

Documentary filmmaking is traditionally thought to be objective and impartial in capturing truths about the world, but we all know "truth" to be more complicated than that. There are many sides of the story, sometimes contradictory, sometimes just different shades of the truth.

In recent years, there has been a rise of what filmmaker Alisa Lebow calls the first-person film--what we will call personal cinema--that reveals the intricate subjectivities of film and filmmakers. Through a series of short films and film excerpts hosted by Film scholar and Diwa filmfest organizer Adrian Alarilla, we will explore how personal cinema has been made to good use by contemporary Filipino and diasporic Filipino filmmakers to more completely describe their multi-faceted lives, as well as see how the tiniest personal story can convey great cultural realities.

Equity Leaders Unite!

Equity Leaders Unite!

Friday June 2nd - 9:00am - Friday June 2nd - 4:30pm

2100 24th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144-4632, United States

Whether it is called diversity, equity and inclusion, multiculturalism, or anti-racism, the role of leading equity initiatives in the workplace can be challenging. Many organizations have created these positions in the past ten years, and those hired are coming in without any clear direction. Equity leaders often feel isolated and can quickly become frustrated or feel overwhelmed.

However, if we can come together to collaborate and learn from each other’s mistakes and successes, perhaps we can craft an easier path forward. As Paulo Freire said, “We make the road by walking.”

This workshop provides an opportunity for equity leaders to share strategies for organizational change, problem solve some of the challenges they face, and to network. Each participant will be asked to bring an example of a success story, strategy, or tool to share. Everyone will be given time to discuss challenges and hear the best thinking from their colleagues.

Facilitators Caprice Hollins and Ilsa Govan will share a model of multicultural organizational development and strategies for change we’ve identified over the past eight years in our work with hundreds of organizations.

We’d love for you to be part of this community where we share ideas to successfully address equity, inclusion and social justice in organizations. Our goal is for participants to come away with new tools for this important work as well as supportive partnerships they can lean on for many years to come. Won’t you join us?

Town Hall Seattle
1119 8th Ave
Seattle, WA  98101 Map

Over 80 percent of teachers in American public schools are white, while the majority of students are kids of color. #EducationSoWhite will expand on conversations about the impact of imbalanced representation that were started last fall at Town Hall’s popular #JournalismSoWhite event. A panel of dynamic education leaders will examine the impact of the gaps in our schools currently separating students and teachers. The topics that will be fueling this event include: the achievement gap, ideas for solutions in recruiting and retaining teachers of color, equitable restorative justice practices, the school-to-prison pipeline, inclusion—not just tolerance—for LGBTQ/QPOC teachers and students, and more.
Kristin Leong, M.Ed., Town Hall’s new Community Programs Curator, will be opening this event with a presentation about her TED-Ed Innovation Project, based on her recent TEDx talk which opened TEDxWWU 2017.

Panelists include:
Jesse Hagopian, 2013 National Secondary School Teacher of Year and History Teacher at Garfield High School

Joy Williamson-Lott, Professor, UW College of Education

Sharonne Navas, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Equity in Education Coalition of Washington

Northwest Film Forum

Seattle, WA  98122 Map

(Feras Fayyad, Syria, 2017, 104 min)

** Seattle premiere! **

Thursday, Jun 15 at 08:00PM
Wednesday, Jun 21 at 08:00PM
Thursday, Jun 22 at 08:00PM

Winner of the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad’s breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization comprised of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards military strikes and attacks in the hope of saving lives. Incorporating moments of both heart-pounding suspense and improbable beauty, the documentary draws us into the lives of three of its founders – Khaled, Subhi, and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee or stay and fight for their country.

"A masterpiece." – Nick Fraser, The Guardian

"[Demands] to be reckoned with. There is no denying the cumulative power of the material, in large part due the protagonists’ endless reservoirs of humanity, dignity and selflessness in the face of one of the world’s worst biggest current and most incomprehensible tragedies. Last Men in Aleppo speaks very loudly from the heart." – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

Arab Festival 2017

Arab Festival 2017

Saturday July 15th - 11:00am - Sunday July 16th - 6:00pm

Seattle Center
305 Harrison St
Seattle, WA  98109 Map

The Arab Center of Washington (ACW) is a cultural organization founded in 1992 by a group of community members following the first Persian Gulf War. Their goal was to showcase Arab culture and arts in our own community. They researched ideas on how to achieve this objective and produced the first Arab Festival, which was held at Seattle philanthropist Kay Bullitt’s home in 1993.

In 1999, ACW partnered with Seattle Center to produce the Arab Festival as part of Seattle Center’s Festal. Festal is a series of 20 cultural and ethnic festivals sponsored by the City of Seattle throughout the calendar year. The Arab Festival won the “Best of Festal” in 2001, and is currently produced every two years. It has become ACW’s signature event. By 2007, the Arab Festival had grown to over 5,000 attendees from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Canada.

ACW believes Arab culture in all of its richness and diversity has something to offer all people. ACW’s vision is to strengthen relationships between Arabs, Arab Americans and the wider community and to see all people in the Pacific Northwest region benefit from ACW programs and services, while gaining an enhanced, realistic understanding of what it means to be Arab. The Arab festival is our signature event. Don’t miss it!

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.

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.
