The Partnership’s Committee structure empowers specific action and issue-based committees to respond in real-time to critical issues, necessitating an available pool of funding.
● The Systems and Reporting on Hate and Bias Committee will use resources for projects such as: developing training modules around Anti-Hate and Bias, supporting a network of rapid response to hate crimes, and providing stipends for trainers and community responders. The committee is currently working with King County as well as the Attorney General’s Office on the hate and bias reporting system they are building.
● The Front Line and Immediate Needs Committee will use resources for projects such as: acquiring and distributing masks, gloves, and other protective equipment, increasing the accessibility of COVID testing in our communities, creating a food delivery and storage system, and stipends for those who distribute food and rent relief.
● The Power of Community Advocacy Committee will use resources for activities such as stipends for community members who volunteer their time to tell/teach decision-makers about present inequities and how to resolve inequities. This will ensure that the most impacted community members will be able to participate in crucial advocacy work.
● The Networking and Communications Committee will use resources for projects such as language access and translation of critical information around COVID-19, government programs, and available resources, developing software for Partnership data collection, expanding technology access with wifi, hotspots, and laptops, and stipends for people working on op-eds, translation, software developing, and technology access.
● The Inclusive Communities Committee will use resources for projects such as: helping identify undocumented communities and supporting rent and food assistance programs for these communities, advocating for the inclusion of undocumented communities in key economic stimulus programs, and relevant translations.
● The LGBTQIA+ Committee (more soon).
