I-135 Canvass: Columbia City – Social Housing for All!
January 29 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=29910
Join Seattle DSA to get the word out about I-135 ahead of the February 14th election. We’ll be meeting at the parking lot in the Genesee Playfield to knock doors in the neighborhood, so wear comfortable walking shoes! A fully charged phone with miniVAN installed will also be helpful. Please RSVP so organizers can keep in contact — it may be difficult to find the canvass if arriving late!
