About this event

This fun afternoon virtual gathering will bring some much needed laughter, some good conversation, and help raise funds for Be:Seattle's work with special guest speakers and amazing talent!

We want to see our old friends and new friends, so register here - It is free to attend!

Let's celebrate building power for tenants and people experiencing houselessness; Let's support Be:Seattle's community care and leadership into 2022!

Our goal for this event is to raise $3,500 to meet operational goals for 2021 and into 2022. This is urgent and critical work during the continued housing and rent crisis as the pandemic continues and assistance lags behind.
