Nearly 500 people showed up in Occidental Square to rally against a rise in emboldened hate and bigotry. Please join us as we gather once again in Occidental Square as the Kadima community (the name the Jewish Liberation Alliance adopted after that rally 40 years ago) to celebrate “40 Years of Struggle” and honor our rededication, solidarity, accomplishments, and liberatory community. We plan to have speakers from a range of intersectional struggles in Seattle, to share culture and build community. @ Occidental Square, 117 S Washington St, Seattle
