Taking Action

Where to Protest in Seattle August 7–10

Here are places to join calls for change.

By Sam Luikens August 7, 2020

Demonstrations this coming week range from a walk of solidarity for farmworkers in Washington state to a daily Edmonds protest demanding an end to white supremacy. Wear a mask if you go out, social distance if possible, and don’t show up if you’ve been exposed to Covid-19. Not feeling safe in public? This list includes virtual events.      

Fri, Aug 7
Friday March for #BlackLivesMatter
The Black-Indigenous Coalition hosts a downtown march every Friday to bring awareness to systemic oppression against Black and Indigenous people. 5pm East Pine Street and Broadway, Seattle

Sat, Aug 8
Solidarity Walk for Farmworkers' Rights
Inspired by rallies and strikes against farmworker abuse in Central Washington, Protectors of the Salish Sea and other local groups will host a march of solidarity beginning in Westlake Park. Organizers are calling for stronger protections against Covid-19 for the people on the frontlines of Washington state’s food system. 6pm, 401 Pine Street, Seattle

Sundays thru August
D6 For Defunding
On Sundays, participants (especially District Six residents) are invited to Bergen Place during the Ballard farmers market. Not sure of your district? Check here. Hosted by the BLM Bergen Place Stand In, the protest calls on the largely white neighborhoods of North Seattle to use their privilege to help end “systemic colonial racism” by joining with local activist groups. Organizers will provide extra signs and hand sanitizer while volunteers will act as a buffer against any potential disrupters. 10am, 5420 22nd Ave Northwest, Seattle

Edmonds for Black Lives Rally for Freedom
The Edmonds Neighborhood Action Coalition gathers every day at Four Corners Westgate in an effort to dismantle white supremacy and support the movement for Black lives. 12pm, 22899 100th Ave. West, Edmonds
