The SeaTac Tukwila Community Coalition formally adopted the coalition’s Collective Vision, an article of statement that highlights the coalition’s mission, values, strategic focus, and desired community outcomes. The Coalition Collective Vision is formalized as follows:
The SeaTac Tukwila Community Coalition (STCC) is a multi-cultural, BIPOC led coalition of community-based organizations. With deep community relationships and lived experience, we work together to address the current economic, social, and racial disparities in SeaTac & Tukwila.
We are known for successfully creating anti-racist and inclusive solutions, in partnership with those we serve. We serve those who are left out of the decision-making processes and furthest to resources and opportunities: immigrant and refugee families who live in South King County. This area is the region’s busiest cultural hub, home to one of the highest concentrations of newly arrived immigrants and refugees.
We work to remove structural barriers to ensure that our community builds wealth and lives healthy lives. We do this by supporting and elevating community and youth voices through leadership development, in-language training (i.e. training provided in different languages), and programs designed using knowledge gained by working on the ground with community. We build community power by leveraging our collective resources. We are building a movement where communities write their own destiny.
The outcomes we’re striving for:
Our community is powerful, and its leaders represent lived experiences relevant to the community. They are policy and systems changers. They create equitable pathways for community empowerment.
Our community has equitable access to economic mobility, healthy and cultural food, affordable housing, culturally relevant health services, and open green space.
Our community is healthy and thriving. Through their impactful advocacy, they are addressing displacements, advancing climate health, and building flourishing cultural communities.
