She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Seattle School Board Demonstration

When: Wednesday, September 3rd from 4:15pm-8pm
Where: John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence, 2445 3rd Ave S, Seattle

Peaceful demonstration during the Seattle Public Schools School Board meeting seeking to hold them accountable for their many failures that led a Garfield High student’s education and mental health being derailed after she was raped on a school trip. This traumatic event was entirely preventable, if only the staff organizing the trip had bothered to follow their own rules and chaperon the students.

So far, the district refuses to admit that anything went wrong, even though they repeatedly failed to follow their own rules. Even though their failures have been documented in incredible detail. Even though their own investigation found that staff had repeatedly failed to follow basic guidelines.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
