Hate has no place in our community. As a volunteer with the King County Anti-Hate and Bias Coalition last year, I sought to bring awareness of this kind of violence in our region. We all must denounce acts of racial bias and violence in King County, where hundreds of cases have been reported by community members since March 2020. I personally listened to our community members talked about their stories of assaults, and often times, re-living such traumas.
Unlike Councilmember Reagan Dunn, who has refused to recognize racism as a public health crisis, I understand that prejudice and discrimination are barriers to safety, opportunity, well-being, and success. Representation matters – District 9 residents deserve a councilmember who will stand up for all of them – someone who can be trusted to acknowledge and act on the issues and obstacles facing our community, even if they haven't experienced that challenge personally.
I will be that advocate. Please REACH OUT to me with your experiences of hate and bias. I'm here to listen and fight for you.
Another example in our Renton Community:
King County Anti-Hate and Bias Coalition:
www.kingcounty.gov/elected/executive/equity-social-justice/Coalition-Against-Hate-And-Bias/Coalit...On 2/13/2021, Renton Police received a complaint by phone from a man who reported being hit by a snowball thrown by a female. The man told the officer he didn’t know why the female suspect threw the snowball at him. The man said he was able to distance himself from the woman and he disconnected the call with the officer.
Since that time, we have learned that the victim posted a video of the woman using a racial slur during the incident. The officer was not made aware of the exchange during the phone call with the victim. We are making continued attempts to reach out to the victim to gather more information for the investigation.
The Renton Police Department takes all reports involving hate crimes or bias very seriously. Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our community members and we will investigate this incident to our fullest ability. ... See MoreSee Less
Today, I joined with brothers and sisters from King County Labor Council, Transit Riders Union, UNITE HERE Local 8, and many more organizations to stand in solidarity with workers in Bessemer, Alabama and in King County.
Supporting workers’ rights is dear to my heart. I remember my mother took 2 to 3 buses to get to her work at a few restaurants during my childhood years. And knowing that at her jobs she had to work non-stop with no built in breaks for the whole full 8-10 hour plus shifts, and often times, “lunch” break means “here are some left over food that you can bring home and eat lunch” after work...
