Candidates for Seattle City Council participated in a forum Friday night called "The Urban Indian Experience and a Green New Deal."
In June, the Seattle City Council vowed to pursue a Green New Deal, which is the campaign to eliminate Seattle's climate pollution by 2030. The Green New Deal also aims to "address historical and current injustices" and create thousands of green, unionized jobs.
Friday night's forum focuses on the critical issues facing American Indian and Alaska Native residents in Seattle and what a Green New Deal means for Seattle.
The event was livestreamed from the KEXP Gathering Space near the Seattle Center.
Partners included Chief Seattle Club, United Indians of All Tribes Foundation, Urban Indian Health Institute, 350 Seattle, Got Green, OneAmerica, SEIU 775, Sunrise Seattle, Grist.org, Mithun, KEXP and KING 5.
