RSVP by July 8, online or 206-268-6796

Senior Services, a nonprofit serving King County, received an equity grant to engage folks in the Shoreline Light Rail Planning Process whose voices are not often heard.

Specifically, they are reaching out to Shoreline residents who are members of the Korean Community. An event on July 11 to planned to find out what they envision, and to prepare them to engage in transit oriented development. The event will be conducted in Korean, child care and a Korean buffet are provided.

The event will feature several benefits:
  • Extra time and training to explain the process
  • Free dinner, day care and transportation to the events
  • A stipend for people who want to become “Community Connectors” and invite others to attend 
  • Resources and support for the people (probably a handful) who will want to stay engaged and bring their voice to the planning process over the next six months.
State Rep. Cindy Ryu will be a featured speaker.

"whose voices are not often heard?" Excuse me? The Korean community has the same opportunities as everyone else.
