Help Us Grow

Families of Color Seattle has received the 2016 Ron Chisom Anti-Racism Award from the Seattle Human Services Coalition!

Families of Color Seattle (FOCS) is dedicated to exploring racism, and engaging in anti-racist work in ways that are accessible to all people and ages. Families of Color Seattle is a safe space for families of color. Anti-racist work is often approached academically – FOCS incorporates art, play, music, food, and community building in their programming, parent groups and community dialogue series to engage parents, educators, and the broader community in anti-racist work.

“FOCS fills a very significant gap for people of color, particularly in early education and parenting communities that allows families to explore racism and build community in a positive way.”

The opportunities to connect with a diverse group of people, experience interacting with blended families, and talking about real social topics that relate to our children was phenomenal.
