Letter to the Editor: Vote YES on Access for All: King County Proposition 1

Thursday, July 13, 2017

To the Editor,

Just Humanitarian Project (JHP) Legacy is a non-profit organization, based in the city of Shoreline.

At JHP Legacy, our goal is to serve kids and families in our community. We focus on educating and uniting our community through cultural understanding, and exchange of ideas. We do this through music, dance and festivals such as our annual Cultural Heritage Festival held in the city of Shoreline.

As with so many small, community-based organizations, however, our programming has always been limited by available funding.

That’s why it is vital we come together to support and vote YES on Access for All: King County Proposition 1.  

Prop. 1 will dramatically expand and stabilize the resources available to organizations like ours, enabling our community to get vital arts, science, and heritage experiences in their backyards. It even provides proportionally more funding for those serving underrepresented populations like communities of color and low-income families.

Prop. 1 will also improve education outcomes for students by funding free field trips and in-class programs.

Arts, science and heritage experiences are vital to a thriving community, and know that arts, science and heritage education improves educational outcomes for kids. For just a $0.001 increase in the sales tax, Prop. 1 will help level the playing field for more King County kids.

When you receive your ballots before August 1st, please vote yes on Prop. 1!

Philip Attipoe
