Seattle City Employees “Walk Out” in Support of Police Accountability

A crowd of nearly 100 city workers and supporters joined together for a rally at City Hall in Seattle to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and to demand police accountability. Speakers from the NAACP of King County and city workers spoke to the power of the Black Lives Matter movement and read their petition to the crowd. The organizers are a coalition of city employees involved with employee groups like the City Light Black Employees Association, the Citywide Black Caucus, City of Seattle Native American Employees, and SEqual, an employee group advocating for LGBTQ equality.

The Petition:
