I pledge to stand up to all forms of hate, bigotry and bullying.
I will not stay silent in the face of intolerance based on race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion, ability or any other factor.
I will work together with my neighbors to create safer, more inclusive communities for all.
We want to work with our local schools and PTA boards to ensure we are inclusive of all our community members.
We're also working with our local government to help our lawmakers in considering other viewpoints when creating policy.
Our local places of worship are ideal for discussing and getting the word out about issues that will benefit everyone.

"I want to thank Snohomish for Equity for inspiring, supporting, and assisting me, and countless others in our community, as we continue to fight for equality. Until everyone from every background is treated equally, no one should sit complacently. We must take the chance to cultivate acceptance and empathy, not only to build a better community in Snohomish, but to secure a brighter future for everyone facing discrimination across the world." Join us in congratulating Isaac and wishing him success in his ongoing education path.
As we stand a little over two months removed from May 31st and the events that followed, Snohomish for Equity (SFE) remains steadfast to our mission and deeply committed to the work of anti-racism. We choose to lean in to this work daily, even when it is uncomfortable. Part of that is defining what we support as an organization.
Over these past two months, social media based misinformation campaigns against SFE have occurred, as well as doxing of SFE board members and several community members who support our mission. Trolling and mischaracterizing our efforts only strengthens our resolve to live up to our purpose and focuses our attention on what truly matters: Black Lives Matter. We will continue to engage our community and provide educational opportunities that promote an understanding of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
As part of our organization's process of biyearly board member position review there have been a few rotations in our board positions. We are pleased to announce our new board for the coming years:
Tabitha Baty - President
Lisa Odom - Vice President
Teresa Rugg - Secretary
Joan Robinett Wilson - Treasurer
Kathy Purviance-Snow / Member at Large
Denise Gertis / Member at Large
Troy Martez / Member at Large

In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation—that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation—the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments—that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.Click Here to join in...
