East Precinct Petition
Washington Youth for Climate Justice is joining the call to convert the abandoned Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct into a youth center that serves as a safe place for young people, especially youth of color. We want to emphasize that we are not leading this call, but amplifying the demand made by BLM protesters.
A youth center would do far more to enrich the community than a police station. The youth of Seattle have been underserved and overpoliced while the SPD drains a third of our city's budget. Support a new Seattle that serves its young people before its cops.
Rather than representing the violence of the SPD, the building can be transformed into something that represents positive change, justice, and community-centered progress. Help us turn the East Precinct into a force for good!
