NOT IN OUR TOWN PLEDGE

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.

 

 


Our Goals

 

Working with our Schools

We want to work with our local schools and PTA boards to ensure we are inclusive of all our community members.

Working with our local government

We're also working with our local government to help our lawmakers in considering other viewpoints when creating policy.

Working across faith groups

Our local places of worship are ideal for discussing and getting the word out about issues that will benefit everyone.

Statement from the Snohomish for Equity Board

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.

  • We support dialogue, awareness, and education around issues of racism in Snohomish.
  • We support our town of Snohomish wholeheartedly as it works to become the best version of itself: a thriving and welcoming community free of hate, intimidation, discrimination, and ignorance.
  • We support/stand with our local government in upholding Resolution 1389.
  • We support our country with the same wholeheartedness. We are patriotic and deeply committed to seeing our country live up to its ideals.
  • We support the efforts of dismantling the white supremacy that is ingrained in our town and country by recognizing systemic racism and addressing the policies and practices that uphold it.
  • We support racial equity and inclusion in all facets of our community.
  • We support a culture of acceptance and openness that allows Snohomish to be proud of who we are.

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.
