Unity Day 2009

Once again, CISC participated in the Minority Executive Directors Coalition's Unity Day in Olympia.

Over 50 members from the Asian Pacific Islander, African American, Latino and Native American communities descended on the capitol to educate our legislators on issues of concern to our communities of color.

With the $8 billion budget shortfall, it's going to be a difficult session, to say the least. But we need to ensure that cuts in funding and services do not disproportionately affect our constituents and our communities.

It's democracy at work!
