Free2Luv Celebrates a ‘Week Without Violence’ with NO TIME 4 HATE Community Event

We’re honored to stand with the City of Seattle and Seattle Parks & Recreation to celebrate a ‘Week Without Violence’. Our community event at South Park Community Center was a powerful evening filled with local performances by youth and young adults who came together to share dance, spoken word, and music. Our beautiful Youth Advocate, Nasir spoke from her heart about her bullying experience and the night featured moving and thought-provoking video presentations. Teens had an opportunity to explore bullying in all contexts while understanding how to use their personal power to create an environment free of hate, free of violence, and free to love.

A big thank you to Taco Time NW for a delicious catered taco bar, Trophy Cupcakes and Giggle Drinks, our Seattle Parks crew, and all of our amazing volunteers.
