Thanksgiving Message from QA Community Council

(This message was e-mailed to a wide list of recipients on Nov. 23, 2016.)

In the past several weeks, communities across our nation have seen a distressing increase of hate crimes.  Seattle has been no exception.

On this Thanksgiving weekend, the Queen Anne Community Council affirms our desire to make Queen Anne a safe neighborhood for everyone, regardless of religion, origin, sexuality or ethnicity.  We support Mayor Murray's  desire to be "guided by equality and inclusiveness and openness."

We, as a strong and vibrant community, embrace the diversity of all our residents and cherish the strength that a multicultural neighborhood brings.  Narratives of hate and fear hurt all of us and damage the fabric of trust and respect that makes our country great.

The Queen Anne Community Council Board
