This Human Rights Day celebration puts a spotlight on local organizations and initiatives who are making waves in the community, and places them in context with broader issues happening across America. This year’s program (the city’s 17th annual event!) features journalist, filmmaker, and immigrants’ rights activist Jose Antonio Vargas (White People) as the keynote speaker. An undocumented immigrant himself, Vargas, who also founded the Define American organization, has worked to elevate the conversation around immigration and citizenship in America.
Preprogram info: Prior to the event there will be a 6:00 p.m. reception and human rights poster presentation by UW students. The reception and poster presentation are open to all.
The event will be held at Seattle First Baptist Church at 1111 Harvard Ave, Seattle, WA, 98122
