Obtaining equality for all must move from the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) area to every neighborhood of Seattle. Not by holding ground but by holding ideals.

As citizens, we must get together and talk about how to make our city a better place for all. The death of George Floyd has forcefully brought inequality to our attention. The way to fix that inequality is for everyone to look at the problems, discuss the problems and develop solutions. Our whole society will be better with a rational discussion of how we can make Seattle and Washington better.

I ask Mayor Jenny Durkan to call for neighborhood discussions. Can Zoom neighborhood meetings be organized to first listen, then discuss ideas that will make our city better?

Then we must encourage people to run for office who will support and advance the ideals agreed upon.
