Last week the Board of Trustees voted on the issue of whether or not to join the following statement proposed by the Port Angeles Racial Justice Collective: “We
seek to hold a safe space for our community members and will not tolerate violence or discrimination in Port Angeles and the North Olympic Peninsula. We offer our support to immigrants, indigenous peoples, people of color, Muslim and Jewish people, LGBTQ people, women and femmes, survivors, people with disabilities, and all those who have been marginalized and may be targeted because of who they are.”
The results of the poll showed that the majority of the CCBA members were in favor of joining the statement. The Board of Trustees discussed the poll, reviewed the comments provided by our members and ultimately chose to vote in favor of joining the statement. Thank you to all those who participated in the poll and provided comments on the issue.
