Protest speaker in Redmond

Community Gathers In Solidarity

Over the past week, hundreds of people have peacefully gathered on several occasions to protest in Redmond’s Downtown Park. We stand in solidarity with those in Redmond and around the country who are speaking out against racism, violence and inequity. The City of Redmond affirms our commitment towards a culturally inclusive community through the 2017 Resolution no. 1465, and identifies Cultural Inclusion as a top priority in the 2019 Community Strategic Plan. We are together as one. #BlackLivesMatter #OurRedmond
