History Café: Revisiting Initiative 13 And LGBT Activism In The 70s
2 hours

Brought to you by

Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI)

Initiative 13, sponsored by Save Our Moral Ethics, sought to repeal Seattle’s ordinances protecting gay and lesbian employment and housing rights and to abolish the Office of Women’s Rights. The story of grassroots organizations Seattle Committee Against Thirteen (SCAT) and Women Against Thirteen (WAT) and their outreach gives a view into the creative tensions inherent in organizing. Join organizers from the campaign to learn and see lessons that can be applied today.

Detailed information on how to participate will be provided via email following registration. Space is limited, so register soon!

Co-presented by MOHAI and the Northwest Lesbian and Gay History Museum Project. History Café is produced as a partnership between MOHAI and HistoryLink.
