Educating the community and providing helpful resources through public events, workshops, programs, schools, public forums and more!

Education

Purpose: Combat historically oppressive school systems by creating educational content, spaces, and opportunities in which we provide accurate recounts of Black and Indigenous People’s history in America and how it has impacted the current day to youth and educators within the local K-12 school system to give students and staff the tools to better understand, respect, honor, and learn from American history.  AND…

Educate the community on the importance of identifying and addressing their own implicit racial biases on an individual basis and as a collective and share ways of reconciliation.

 

Mental Health Awareness

Purpose: To provide access to resources, educate, lobby for better mental health representation in WA State BIPOC communities including but not limited to WA based Jails/Prison Systems, along with combating the stigmas of mental illness/awareness within the BIPOC community when it pertains to Mental Health.

Celebrating Black and Indigenous People of Color

Purpose: To encourage people to remember and embrace the voices, culture, history, work, art, success, resilience, and hope of Black people, and/or Indigenous people, and/or people of color. Not all BIPOC have the same history, culture, or experience so it is important to honor each group of people separately when appropriate and always respectfully. LegallyBLACK proudly organizes and hosts public events like our annual Juneteenth Celebration, the Black Light: an open mic night, Black History Jeopardy game night, and will soon have visual & performing arts exhibits.   

Networking and Representation

Purpose: To establish and build  rapport with elected/appointed officials, first responders, business owners, activists & other like organizations, and philanthropists.
