Year in Review (December)

Seattle CityClub’s annual Year in Review is the time to reflect on the pressing issues and major headlines of the previous year, revisit predictions and see how events changed or stayed the course. Moderated by a leading local journalist, our panel of leaders and luminaries engages in a provocative and wide-ranging discussion of topics like race and equity, minimum wage and affordability, trade and international affairs, education, and current legislative priorities.
