On the List | November Capitol Hill Art Walk, ‘Love’ rally, Post Election Community Response Forum

The weekend around Capitol Hill brings plenty of ways to reenergize after the soul sapping fallout of the 2016 election. There is a night of local art, creation, and performance, a community gathering of “Love Over Hate” in Cal Anderson Park, and, for those of you who find power in planning, a community gathering Sunday night to talk about how to respond to Donald Trump’s victory.

Thursday, head out on an abnormally warm and dry November night for the monthly Capitol Hill Art Walk.

Thursday also brings a free party to celebrate the opening of the Reverb, a new apartment building at 10th and Alder that is part of a trio of new developments from Spectrum Development Solutions.

Sunday, a group of SPU graduate students in marriage and family therapy are organizing a community gathering in Cal Anderson Park with hopes of a non-political show of “love, support, and togetherness.” Organizers of Love Over Hate are looking for community members to be part of the demonstration. Organizers of the family friendly event hope people will bring sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and more to help mark the day. Bring an umbrella, too.

This event has exploded in interest as over 800 people have said they plan to attend! This was way beyond our hopes or expectations so I am reaching out to see if you have any resources, ideas, or possibilities for having food available? Musicians that would like to participate? Community leaders that want to join?

Love Over Hate

Protect what you love

A more structured event is planned for Sunday night at 11th Ave’s V2 in a Post Election Community Response Forum “to process what happened, and develop next steps for protecting the people we love, fighting the national dialogue of hate and defending our rights.”
