NEXT Alliance General Mtg
SPECIAL GUEST: Nick Licata. Nick became a Seattle City Councilmember despite being significantly outspent, with the majority of the council, the mayor, and both daily newspapers supporting his opponent. He was elected to five terms to the council and became its president. In 2012 he was named by The Nation as Progressive Municipal Official of the Year and twice named Best Local Politician by the Seattle Weekly. He was an acknowledged leader in passing Paid Sick & Safe Leave, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and legalizing marijuana. He will come speak to us about his time as a council member and about his book "Becoming a Citizen Activist;" discussing practical tips for fighting for your cause, and providing insights into power, politics and the strategies that make change happen.
TIME: 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Swedish Cultural Center. 1920 Dexter Ave N., Seattle, WA
