Children's Campaign Fund (CCF) and Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) proudly present The Future for Kids in the Emerald City: a six part video forum for the 2021 Seattle mayoral race.
LAUNCHING JUNE 28: WATCH ALL SIX VIDEOS IN THE VIRTUAL FORUM TODAY!
Learn more about our project, participating candidates, and presenting partners below.
We're centering some of the most pressing issues impacting children, youth, and families in Seattle, providing a platform to learn about the candidates' positions on each, and offering an opportunity for issue experts in Seattle to ask their own questions directly to candidates. Our goal is to center children, youth, and families in the race for Seattle's next Mayor -- and educate voters without either CCF or SCAN making official endorsements in this election.
Candidates who filed to run with the Seattle Ethics and Election Commission and demonstrated fundraising activity of at least 100 contributions by a specified date, including Democracy Vouchers, were invited to participate. Candidate submissions for each topic/video are presented alphabetically by last name. Participating candidates include:
