Racial Grievance Reporting Form
Please use this form to report a racial grievance to Seattle Works.

Your responses will be sent to the Managing Director and the Chair of the Board Development and Diversity Committee.
This policy and reporting form is intended for racism that happens in connection with Seattle Works. We are a small organization, and unfortunately do not have capacity to address racism outside of our organization, volunteers, partners, and vendors. If you are looking to report a racist incident that isn’t connected to Seattle Works, here are some reporting resources in different cities and jurisdictions in WA State:
Summary of Racial Grievance Policy
Seattle Works is building an anti-racist culture of belonging, where people can show up being their true selves, and accountability and is working to model anti-racist practices in our institutional and personal behavior. The racial grievance policy is to support people of color to feel safe in the Seattle Works community and to actively address and interrupt microaggressions, harassment, racial discrimination, and other racial misconduct. Our racial grievance policy is grounded in the lived experiences of people of color and our commitment to addressing and reducing racial grievances in our community. Seattle Works’ culture is growing to be truly more representative, so people of color in our community have organizational support and feel safe.
