34th District Democrats offer presentation on Compassion Seattle charter amendment on homelessness
information from 34th District Democrats
A controversial campaign to alter Seattle’s city charter and force it to handle homelessness differently, known as Compassion Seattle, has officially qualified to appear on the November ballot. Since Charter Amendment 29 was announced earlier this year, it has received mixed feedback. Candidates for the mayoral primary next month are almost evenly split on it. While few homeless nonprofit leaders and advocates have spoken out in favor of it, many others have started a campaign called House Our Neighbors to encourage Seattle voters to say “No.”
Our goal here is to give you the opportunity to hear from both sides so that you can make your own choice. This is the pre-meeting program for our August membership meeting. We will - later in the meeting agenda - allow time for motions of endorsement.
This is a seminal initiative for our community - join us early on August 11 - starting at 6:00 pm (same Zoom as our August meeting) - to learn about the for and against arguments and then we will provide an opportunity for questions.

The meeting will be called to order at 7pm.
