All Together Seattle (ATS) is taking place over the next few months, from February to April, in our community. Co-sponsored by Ballard Food Bank, The Bridge Care Center, and the Ballard branch of the Seattle Public Library, ATS promotes community discussion on the issues of poverty through book clubs, movie screenings, social media, and public forums.
Why now? We know that poverty in Seattle is on the rise, and it affects those of us who call Seattle home. To that end, All Together Seattle focuses building an understanding of the realities of poverty in our community. The first step toward positive change is understanding the need for such change. Join the discussion and share your voice.
