No Charity for Cops: Rally at Seattle Foundation!
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=17633
2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
1601 5th Ave
Since 2003, the Seattle Foundation has provided nearly $800,000 in grants to the Seattle Police Foundation (SPF), making it the largest single donor by far. These funds pay for riot gear, surveillance equipment, K9s, as well as training in violent crowd-control techniques used to suppress recent protests. Donations to SPF stand in contrast with the progressive image Seattle Foundation strives to project. Furthermore, despite its supposed commitment to racial equity, the foundation gave less than 3% of its grants to BIPOC-led organizations in the past two years.
Join us at Westlake Center (400 Pine St) at 2pm on Saturday, September 19 to demand Seattle Foundation cut ties with the Seattle Police Foundation and increase investments in local BIPOC communities!
