Thanks to the West Seattle Blog for taking the time to talk with us about the current political climate and how it affects our community. This is a great article and for those who are able - please note Lucia's advice, 'If you see someone treat someone badly, in the street, on a bus, in a school – do something … use your power, use your privilege, and do something … it’s time.' http://westseattleblog.com/2016/12/looking-ahead-to-2017-southwest-youth-and-family-services-carefully-watching/
