Vote with Vera: Cast an Anti-Racist Ballot

The Vera Project is hosting “Vote with Vera: Cast an Anti-Racist Ballot” featuring Official Kimya Dawson, Summer Cannibals, Nikkita “KO” Oliver, and special guests on Thursday, October 3rd from 6:30-11PM!

Centered around getting out the vote in local elections and beyond for immigrant and refugee rights, ending youth homelessness, and fighting youth incarceration, we’ll all learn how to cast an anti-racist ballot together with music, guest speakers, a ballot forum, and more. Special thanks to our spotlighted nonprofit partners at The Washington Bus, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Sanctuary Art Center, King County Elections, the Seattle Foundation, & more!!!
