Thriving Communities Network and Seattle CityClub are two organizations dedicated to connecting communities and breaking down barriers to civic engagement. For this happy hour event, we will be coming together to host young professionals to meet, tell stories, and learn from each other's experiences of moving to Seattle. This is an introduction to the conversations we will be having at CityClub's upcoming Civic Bootcamp event on Immigration and Civic Engagement.
With thousands of people moving to Seattle every year, this city cultivates an atmosphere of "newness". For some, they can find their niche in the tech community or on Capitol Hill, but for many, it is can be difficult to adapt to Seattle's unique urban culture.
At New In Town: Stories of Migration, we'll come together to share and listen to stories of moving to Seattle. We want to know how you connected you to your community, and broke down barriers, or where barriers and opportunities may still exist for you.
Admission includes your first drink!
