THE FUTURE FOR KIDS IN THE EMERALD CITY:
A virtual forum to center issues impacting children, youth, and families in the 2021 Seattle mayoral race.
LAUNCHING JUNE 28, 2021
PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP BY
Children's Campaign Fund and Save the Children Action Network are proud to present The Future for Kids in the Emerald City: a virtual forum/video series for the 2021 Seattle mayoral race.
Through this project, we’ll center some of the most pressing issues impacting children, youth, and families in Seattle, provide a platform to learn about the candidates' positions on each, and offer 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.
Starting June 28, each video (focused on a specific question) will be available to watch and share for free, on demand. We will post the six final videos right here on this page and across our social media channels.
TOPICS AND PRESENTERS
Each video in the series explores topics related to children, youth, and families. We'd like to extend our enormous gratitude to our partners and community leaders for developing these critical questions:
