Nurturing the Environment and Food Access workshop @ Camp Long
Jun 16 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

DNDA’s Let’s Talk Race Series 2018‎: Nurturing the Environment and Food Access Workshop. Coming up on June 16th, 1–6 pm. Register in advance at tinyurl.com/RaceSeries5

What would it look like to have equitable access to food that nourishes our bodies and nourishes the land? Join us at Camp Long to talk about race in the context of Nurturing the Environment and Food Access. This outdoor workshop will create space for community members to engage in courageous conversations that rely on our vulnerability rather than on instant resolutions. This event will explore how our food systems are built upon the racial injustices of slavery, and how environmental protection is inseparable from indigenous sovereignty. By exposing histories of white supremacy and colonialism in the United States, we can reveal their impacts today. Through timelines, open dialogue, and circle practice, participants will share stories of food traditions and connections to land that build bridges across difference and promote healing.

With facilitators Nat Mengist and Lucia Santos

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body @ Admiral Church
Jun 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body
Thursdays in June (14, 21, 28)
6:30- 8:00pm at Admiral Church

— To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org-

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and
sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression
policed by others (and ourselves), and the church’s role in supporting human freedom around gender
identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of
what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the
gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Fly-tying with Brita Fordice at Emerald Water Anglers
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Brita Fordice was born, raised and learned to fish in Washington state. She taught herself to tie flies at age 10. Once she started, she never stopped.

These days she is an accomplished angler and guide on the beaches of the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, where her custom patterns really shine for cutthroat and salmon. Her flies have been featured in national magazines and she currently works for Sage Manufacturing in their research and development department.

She will be in the shop tying her remarkable baitfish patterns on the evening of Thursday, August 23.

Anyone interested in chasing fish that feed on other fish, either in fresh or salt water, or anyone interested in learning from masterful fly tying shouldn’t miss this event. Brita’s meticulous flatwings, squid, eel and shrimp patterns are uncanny representations of baitfish species.

EWA Fly Shop
August 23rd, 7 pm

Brita will start tying at 7:00 pm. She’ll work through a series of patterns and techniques and answer questions for an hour and a half. Tickets are $10 and available here. We’ll have some special materials ordered for the event and all fly tying materials will be 10% off for ticket holders.

‘Like’ screening at Seattle Lutheran High School
Oct 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

First showing in the area of the screening LIKE.

A one-hour documentary about the impact of social media on our lives.

Seattle Lutheran High School invites you to a free screening of LIKE. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.

IndieFlix goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self-regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other. (Go here) to view the official trailer of the documentary.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ High Point Library
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the High Point Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.

Fairmount Park Elementary PTA General Membership Meetings

We need help from all of our parents and teachers to continue raising funds to support school initiatives.

We strongly encourage everyone to renew or start a new membership for only $15 per person.

To join, simply attend our next PTA meeting or register online (http://www.fpepta.org). This gives you a vote (voice) on how your fundraising dollars are spent towards our amazing programs: music & art, enhanced assemblies, the Backpack program, student wellness, parent education events, and much more.

General Membership Meetings for the 2018/19 school year will take place at the school cafeteria, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

All are welcome to attend. Child-care services will likely be available for these meetings. Contact board@fpepta.org with questions.

Learn about new 24-credit high-school requirement @ Chief Sealth International High School
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm

We’d like to invite the West Seattle Community to our Nov. 13th, PTSA General Meeting for a presentation on the state requirement for 24 credits for graduation. Presentation by Heidi Bennett, Wa. State Region 6, Legislative Representative.

NEW 24 CREDIT GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS & DECIPHERING HIGH SCHOOL – A guide for middle and high school parents

With the change to WA State 24-credit graduation requirements approaching, I’ve developed a presentation geared toward middle and high school parents to explain:

v New WA State 24-credit graduation requirements

v State and Federal testing High School requirements

v Deciphering acronyms – PPR, HSBP, AP, IB, CHIS, CTE, STEM, etc. – do you know what these are?

v Why and how to earn post-secondary credit (college or work credentials) in high school

For Shoreline and Seattle, the 24-credit graduation requirement starts with the class of 2021 (rising 10th graders) and beyond, as both districts have a 2-year waiver. Neither district has finalized plans for offering more credits beyond their current 6-period day/24 credit earning opportunities! YIKES

Come and learn more about this new requirement

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women @ TBA
Jan 19 all-day

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Dec 15 – CARVING, Jan 19 – BASKETRY, Feb 16 – LEATHER CRAFT, Mar 16 – WILDCRAFT (plant medicine)

Restorative Justice and Healing @ Youngstown Theater
Jan 21 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us for Restorative Justice and Healing, our MLK Day of Service event in partnership with United Way of King County. Childcare and community dinner are provided.

In honoring Dr. King on this day of service, DNDA will engage Delridge and surrounding communities in constructive conversation about how race and justice influence each other in modern-day America. In examining what it means to have justice, this event will bring together neighbors of all ethnicities and races to bridge our differences and communicate through a restorative justice approach.

Utilizing the peacemaking circle, participants will engage in a non-hierarchical discussion and learn through the collective wisdom embedded in the stories and lived experiences of all participants.

This event will include a screening of the film Healing Justice, which explores the causes and consequences of the U.S. justice system and its effect on marginalized communities.

Local service-based organizations will be invited to participate and advocate for the resources they provide—including organizations like Hate Free Delridge and Young Women Empowered. Following the event, all participants and volunteers will be invited to continue discussing over a community dinner.

Please register here by Jan 18, 2019.

Feb 16 all-day

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Exploring Our Collective Memory: An Invitation to Reflect on U.S. History @ Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our Lady of Guadalupe Immigrant Ministry is excited to host Professor Catherine Punsalan-Manlimos, PhD from the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture at Seattle University on Thursday, February 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the School Hall.

Together, we will explore our collective memory with regards to our immigration history. Most of us in the U.S. today are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. With the exception of our Native American brothers and sisters and the descendants of enslaved free peoples from Africa, many of us or our forebears immigrated to this country seeking a better future and freedom from persecution, violence, or poverty. Reflecting on the history of U.S. immigration in light of Catholic Social Traditions can remind us why fighting for policies that honor the dignity of our migrant brothers and sisters is a matter of faith and a matter of justice.

Is there an ideal amount of practice that should go into doing a 5k, a 10k, or longer? -How do you balance training with life? -How do you deal with fear in the open water? -What do you eat on long swims? Go to the bathroom? -How do you overcome negative thinking? -How do you recover?

On March 22 and 23, over 200 students and teachers will gather at Chief Sealth International High School for the fourth annual Washington State Global Issues Network (WAGIN) Conference, a two-day international event led by local students seeking to tackle global issues, learn together, and spark lasting change.

The conference theme is “Action For Sustainability Now,” which focuses on immediate action
students can take to make a lasting impact on issues like climate change, food security and racial
justice.

The conference brings together students and teachers from the Seattle area and three states (Colorado, Texas, and Florida), as well as four countries (Canada, Mexico, Cuba, and South Korea). Each team of students will lead a workshop in which they share what they are doing to take action on one (or more) of the twenty global issues outlined by the Global Issues Network.

Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib will address the conference at dinner on Friday. Other keynote speakers
include Jorge Baron (Northwest Immigrant Rights Project), a panel of UW climate scientists, Andrea
