Savery Hall Rm. 260 (Chelan Ln, Seattle
To stand in solidarity with workers at UAW4121 who are currently on strike at UW, where our forum was scheduled to take place, and due to candidate conflicts, we have decided to cancel the District 4 Mobility Forum tonight.
We’re working to reschedule the event so that community members can hear from the candidates on their mobility priorities ahead of the August primary.
If you would like to join the unions on the line, pickets go till 6:30pm, one good location is 15th and Stevens. Check here for more information about the strike and how to support striking UW postdocs and researchers.
Join us for a chance to hear what Seattle City Council Candidates for District 4 Representative have to say about transportation, mobility, and climate issues in Seattle. Moderated by Crystal Fincher, host of Hacks & Wonks podcast.
Virtual options available.
Monday, June 12, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
University of Washington, Savery Hall Rm. 260
