About Snohomish for Equity
The mission of SFE is to create dialogue and awareness around issues of racism in Snohomish. Our purpose is to engage our community and provide educational opportunities that promote an understanding of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
We envision a Snohomish where everyone feels welcome and included, no matter where they are from or who they are. All Snohomish residents deserve to live in a community free of hate, intimidation, discrimination, and ignorance. We seek racial equality and inclusion in all facets of community life. We believe we can create a culture of acceptance and openness that allows Snohomish to be proud of who we are as a community.
When mothers get together, action can happen. A diverse group of mothers found themselves recounting incidents of racism and bigotry that they had witnessed locally, as well as is playing out across the nation. We chose to raise our children in this town, but have noticed disturbing trends of racism and a resistance to dialogue about implicit biases that exist. Snohomish for Equity was born out of this group’s desire to make our community welcoming and safe for all.
