Building Leaders of Change
WA-BLOC collaborates regularly with our local community to cultivate and facilitate school/community wide ‘social justice events.’
These events, like our annual “B.L.O.C. Party” collaborate with 40-50 community organizations, leaders, activists, and student leaders to host an array of interactive workshops to uplift and affirm identities of black and brown youth and mobilize our community in work of justice.
Other examples of social justice leadership programming include apprentice-style participation in the Black Student Union, transportation justice townhalls, school board presentations, and coalition-building circle practice meetings with Community members and City and Seattle Public School officials, exemplified by recent efforts to address issues of food insecurity in our school and wider southend community.
