Through authentic listening, we have heard that people feel excluded from parks due a lack of physical accessibility as well as a lack of feeling safe and welcome. The Eli’s Park Project team is working to transform the Burke Gilman Playground Park into a place where everyone in our community feels a sense of belonging.
Our Seattle University interns are hosting a virtual event prioritizing LGBTQ+ voices on May, 26th from 6 pm - 7:30 pm to share the concept and gather feedback on what kinds of art, messaging, symbols, etc. would make this park a place that feels welcoming to all.
All are welcome to join and help us create a park where everyone belongs. For further information, or to request any accommodations, email email@example.com.
We would like to give a shout-out to Seattle Pride for putting us on their events page! https://www.seattlepride.org/events/elis-park-project-lgbtq-outreach-event
