MET: Redlining Heritage Trail Tour + Lunch @ Wing Luke Museum (MEMBERS ONLY)

May 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Membership Experience Team (MET) will be inviting you to some special social and educational events this spring and summer. It will be a chance to finally have time to catch up with old friends and meet new ones in person! The goal of MET is to increase and maintain membership by engaging members in activities that are social, activities that explore and educate, and activities that highlight WaWF’s strategic plan and values. We hope that all members will feel a part of this committee, their work and share any ideas you have or can offer for activities to encourage participation.

The Redlining Heritage Trail Tour is offered by the Wing Luke Museum and is produced in partnership with the National Park Service and Northwest African American Museum. Join us on Friday May 3rd at 11:00am as we walk through the Chinatown-International District and Central District. The tour will educate us about housing exclusion in Seattle and how the communities came together to make change. Though many believe Seattle as a liberal city, the history of redlining and the road towards open housing has been a long struggle. Knowing the history of redlining and the Civil Rights movement in Seattle is necessary as we continue to explore themes of gentrification and displacement as time goes on. Take a walk with us to hear the stories of home, and to celebrate BIPOC communities that are currently and were historically marginalized in Seattle.

The guided tour is 90 minutes long. The tour covers approximately 1 mile of travel on city sidewalks with elevation changes and indoors in a historic building. We would start in the Wing Luke Museum building at the Tateuchi Story Theatre before heading out into the neighborhood, and then end back at the museum. Register early: this event has space for only 20 members. This tour is $21.00 per person, payable upon arrival at the museum. 

Register here for the Redlining Heritage Trail Tour!

Join us for a no host lunch at 1:00pm at Jade Garden, a lively dim sum restaurant near the museum. Please RSVP for the tour or for the tour and lunch. Please direct questions to MET co-leader, Aru at aruvc@hotmail.com.
