North Puget Sound Conference on Race is Postponed

The Communities of Color Coalition (C3)  announces the postponement of the  9th Annual North Puget Sound Conference on Race (NPSCOR) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an extremely challenging time and we acknowledge that we are experiencing unprecedented challenges. We are in particular aware how hard these times will be for our most vulnerable communities. As we monitor the effects of this world-wide pandemic, we will continue to advocate for the needs of our community.


We take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to our upcoming 9th Annual NPSCOR speakers, Christian Paige, Dr. Gregory Yasuda, and Chanin Kelly Rae  for their work and dedication. In addition, we acknowledge the partnership of Mariner High School as they are willing to share with us the use of their campus and facilities for our NPSCOR.


In addition, the upcoming 9th Annual Conference on Race would not be possible without the generous support of our 9th Annual NPSCOR sponsors: Kaiser Permanente, Seattle People’s Fund,  Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church and American Federal of Teachers.


We look forward to serving and supporting you, the C3 Community and will keep you updated on the rescheduling of the 9th Annual North Puget Sound Conference on Race at a future date.


Thank you for your continued support.


In closing we remind you, the C3 Community, that there will be no C3 general meeting in March 2020 or April 2020.  The C3 Annual Meeting (scheduled for March 28, 2020)  will be postponed to a later date as well.  We will be following the directives of the local and state leaders  who, guided by  CDC and local County Health Departments, will advise us when it is safe to resume our meetings.   In the meantime , as already stated in this email, we will continue to advocate for the needs of our community.


Please continue to check our website ( and Facebook page at Communities of Color Coalition, C3 for upcoming meetings ,  events and actions.  There are also resources for safe actions listed on the C3  Facebook page.  The City of Everett website includes safe actions which are available in many languages, including English.
