To: Mayor Armacost and Sequim City Council: Denounce systemic racism in our community!
This petition made change with 2,277 supporters!
Systemic racism has been allowed to flow through Sequim for too long. On March 9, 2020 a group of concerned citizens brought this to your attention, quoted the horrific things being said about our tribal neighbors and begged you to pass a resolution to denounce this behavior. We were ignored. We were ignored time and time again. You are our elected leaders and now you have council members not even willing to discuss the topic of racism in our community. If you are not willing to discuss the biggest issue at hand, step down. We need real leaders willing to have real conversations and come up with viable solutions to combat this horrible behavior happening in our city. My hope is everyone signs this petition and we can show our city leaders that we will NOT BACK DOWN. We will NOT “wait for the dust to clear” like one councilman suggested. We DO NOT “think this is funny” as another councilman suggested. Pass a resolution now, be willing to have conversations. This topic and our presence will not go away.
