Welcome to Week 194

of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: mouthful

You'd be excused for talking with your mouth full this week, as there's plenty to talk about over dinner. Hang out in the park with friends and a bag of cherries. Support a cause. Influence the design of a new building. Get inspired, get creative. There's a lot to chew on in here.


Live locally.

Lots of new events from Jazz Night School, and more.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Thursday, June 7, 7:30pm • Dinner served at 6:30pm

Learn about the growing national movement to win justice for Marissa Alexander, a Black mother from Florida who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for defending herself against her abusive husband. Did sexism and racism cause the judge to reject her "stand your ground" defense?

Also featured: a discussion of whether Democrats have done anything to earn women's votes, and an overview of activities for Seattle's annual Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Trans/Queer Pride Week. Add your thoughts and find out how you can get involved.

Laws of Nature: Laws of Man discussion series

The Rainier Valley Cultural Center is piloting a science and law discussion series in May and June. Featuring Morton and Phillip Tavel, scientist father and lawyer son, the series will explore the phenomena of the natural universe and the principles of society and how they affect us on Tuesdays, May 22 through June 12 at 7pm.

These discussions will be presented in lively, 50-minute talks, followed by a brief question and answer period. The discussions are independent of each other and audiences don't need to attend one to understand another. Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Rainier Valley Cultural Center is located at 3515 S Alaska St.
