Young, Gifted and Brown: 2015 Seattle Post-Election Analysis

November 16, 2015 - 8:00 am

In South Seattle last week, a group of young politicos of color decided to offer their points of view on this year’s vote with an event titled, Young, Gifted and Brown: 2015 Seattle Post-Election Analysis. It was a packed house as they shared their opinions on engaging communities and candidates of color. Our own Sonya Green was a moderator alongside King 5 political reporter, Natalie Brand and South Seattle Emerald founder, Marcus Green.

The panelists included District 1, Seattle City Council Candidate and Honest Elections Campaign Manager, Brianna Thomas, Progressive Majority Executive Director, EJ Juárez, Washington Bus Development Director, Crystal Reed, King County Chief Deputy Assessor, Tre Maxie and Working Washington Executive Director, Sejal Parikh.

Here are a few excerpts from the event.
