WORLD WATER WEEK RESOURCE FAIR PLUS ‘MR. TOILET’: The highlight of World Water Week at Chief Sealth International High School is something you are invited to be part of – a resource fair to learn about water issues (with participants including “Diver Laura” James on behalf of the runoff-fighting tox-ick.org campaign) at 6 pm, then at 7 pm, the keynote speech by Jack Sim, founder of the World Toilet Organization, who’s come thousands of miles to help you understand what’s at stake and how to help.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT GRAFFITI VANDALISM? That’s what the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council is scheduled to talk and learn about tonight, with the help of the Seattle Police graffiti detective. 7 pm at the Southwest Precinct meeting room (Delridge/Webster), as previewed here. Crime trends will be discussed too, and you’ll have a chance to bring up neighborhood concerns; all welcome.
SEATTLE POLICE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS MEETING: Last week, Alki; tonight, Belltown is the site of an SPD meeting to answer questions about the surveillance-camera system that started going up unannounced in January (here’s our ongoing coverage archive, newest-to-oldest, since then). All welcome – 7 pm at Belltown Community Center; there’s a map and more preview info in this story we published earlier today.
