Seattle CityClub is Celebrating 40 Years 

by Launching a New Dialogue Across Differences Initiative

This multi-year project was developed to help address polarization and bridge toward solutions. 

Our strategic work started with outreach from our Board and Staff to diverse stakeholders including funders, community partners, and even our founders.  

We listened to the immediate call for social responsiveness.  

Now more than ever, our civic health needs urgent attention.  

Starting in 2021, we are:

Innovating to…

  • Highlight the voices from and issues of underrepresented communities

  • Deliberately engage disparate viewpoints on critical topics

  • Renew focus on coalition building and bridging to solutions

Programming to…

  • Innovate programming formats and creating more hybrid events to meet people where they are, when they want to engage in civics

  • Expand debates through our annual convening of the Washington State Debate Coalition

  • Pilot original programs to reach new audiences and serve a greater variety of needs

Curating to…

  • Retool and refine our technology

  • Provide access to information by topic to help disrupt polarization

We can’t do it without your support. 

Please consider making a gift toward this important initiative – and celebrate Seattle CityClub’s 40th anniversary.
