Black Lives Matter
The Belltown Community Council recognizes that systematic racism is alive and deeply embedded in our culture – racism exists in Belltown, in Seattle and across the United States.
The goal of the BCC has always been to ensure all Belltown community members and business owners feel heard, safe, and connected. However, we as a community organization can and must do more to elevate the voices of the Black community in Belltown and beyond. But in order to make change a reality, we must take action.
As a first step, the BCC will be reexamining our monthly community council meeting formats to specifically highlight voices, perspectives, and businesses from the Black community.
