Asia Pacific Cultural Center
Self Evident: Asian America's Stories gives listeners an intimate look into the lives and struggles of AAPI people as they share their personal experiences like abusive marriages, rewatching Mulan, and how to combat racism within their own communities.
Asian Americana dives specifically into Asian American culture like our country's obsessive craze of bubble tea and the stereotypes behind facial hair and Asian men.
The Washington REALTORS ® DEI Committee has partnered with the Black Home Initiative, a local effort to increase the number of BIPOC households who successfully secure homeownership. BHI is centered around a shared priority of making homeownership possible for 1,500 low to moderate income Black households in South Seattle, South King County and North King County in the next five years. To accomplish this, BHI is focused on building an interconnected network of stakeholders to help address the systems that led to the inequitable outcomes we have today.
Discriminatory housing practices such as redlining and restrictive covenants have a long history in Greater Seattle — creating a staggering wealth gap that persists today. Black Home Initiative (BHI) targets the racial inequities at the core of the housing ecosystem in an effort to increase homeownership among Black households.
