You’ll need more than cucumber sandwiches in a disaster! Being Ready Matters: Preparing Yourself, Your Family & Your Neighbors

Over the past several years we have watched as earthquakes have devastated cities around the world and wondered could that happen here? The Pacific Northwest is not immune. It is not a matter of if, but when the next big one will strike. When it does will, you be ready? This training will identify the steps you can take to prepare yourself, your families and your home. Preparing for disasters can actually be fun!

Seattle Times presents “Portraits of Homelessness”

April 18th, 2017 by hillaryu

The Seattle Public Library will host a community presentation by Pacific NW magazine writer Tyrone Beason and Seattle Times photographer Erika Schultz to share the stories of residents from outdoor settlements around Seattle’s SoDo District from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 4 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium, 206-386-4636.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $6 after 5 p.m.

No one is better suited to discuss the ever-shifting homeless crisis than the people who live in the camps that have sprung up under bridges, on vacant lots, in greenspaces and along streets all across the Puget Sound region.

Beason and Schultz visited outdoor settlements around Seattle’s SoDo District to invite residents to share their stories and concerns, in their own handwriting and from their unique vantage points. They compiled a journal of their reflections, along with intimate, black-and-white photographs, to put a human face on a condition that calls into question our collective humanity as we grapple with how to address this complex issue.
