“Fabulous After 40!” – A Reception Celebrating Four Decades of the Seattle Metropolitan Elections Committee (SEAMEC) for LGBTQ+ individuals.
Friday, September 14th, 2018
from 5:00 pm until 7:30 pm
720 3rd Ave., 12th Floor, Seattle, WA 98104
Generously Hosted by Roger Nyhus & Nyhus Communications
SEAMEC is a unique organization that has interviewed, evaluated and published ratings of candidates seeking public office for over 40 years. We are the oldest continuously operating LGBTQ+ rights organization in Washington State.
While 40 years have passed, recent political events make it obviously clear that elections really do matter and can have grave consequences. Our community recognizes that we cannot take for granted our long-sought civil rights victories of the past, and how quickly and easily we could lose the precious rights we fought so long and hard to attain; demonstrating why SEAMEC’s mission of maintaining our political vigilance is more critical now than ever before!
To ensure SEAMEC continues this vital work in the future, we really need your generous support! During an interview in 2014, SEAMEC Co-founder Roger Winters discussed the importance of this work, he described how, despite all the difficulties, the impact SEAMEC ratings had on elections in those initial years after it was founded gave our community a great sense of pride in seeing the actual effect our candidate ratings had on election outcomes.
There are several ways you can help, as both a financial supporter and as a volunteer. Today, we ask for your support of this event to help us move toward our operational goal of $7,500 for the remainder of 2018.
We are an all-volunteer organization, 100% of every dollar donated goes to the operational costs of SEAMEC’s candidate evaluation program, including rent for our interviewing space, publishing ratings, website, and distribution of election ratings reports. SEAMEC is extremely efficient, we continue to accomplish more for LGBTQ+ equality with fewer dollars than any other community organization.
We ask you to please consider supporting SEAMEC as a Co-Host for this event by inviting three friends to attend along with making a gift today at one of the recommended amounts below. As our thank-you, your name will be prominently displayed in event materials, SEAMEC will recognize you at this event as well as on our 2018 candidate rating reports.
