The Children’s School for Starbucks #Upstanders

Hello Friends,

We are The Children’s School in Seattle, WA. We are a 501c3 non-profit montessori-inspired preschool that has been around for 54 years, educating generations of Seattlites.

After operating for 54 years in the same home, we were asked to find a new home. We found a new spot in Green Lake, but the cost of build-out and permitting is cost-prohibitive.

As you may or may not know, the cost of living is prohibitively expensive, and over 10 preschools in the past 5 years in our neighborhood have closed. We want to continue to serve our community, support our teachers and inspire next generations of kids.

NuFlours Bakery is a women-owned local bakery in Seattle that serves Gluten-Free and alternative baked goods. Their monumental growth from a tiny farmer’s market stand to a stand-alone bakery has been brought forth by the popularity of their awesome baked goods. Their food items are already sold in over 100 Pacific Northwester cafes and grocery stores. Now, they are ready for growth — their own production facility.

NuFlours was chosen in the top 8 finalists for the Business Impact Pitch contest!

“I’ll be honest, with a computer science degree and years of experience in the start-up world, I never thought I’d have to give up my career after having a family.”
-Eva Monsen, Board President and Data Engineering Consultant

How many parents can identify with that statement, especially moms?

It just isn’t getting easier to raise children in today’s world. Childcare is often prohibitively expensive and there are few, if any, flexible drop in or part-time options. Finding safe and affordable childcare can be a significant stress on working parents.
That’s why a group of entrepreneurs, freelancers and stay-at-home parents came together over a year ago, and decided we can make the system work better.

Our founding group of more than fourteen dedicated moms (and dads) came up with a simple plan. We formed the Women’s Business Incubator as an organization to help women entrepreneurs with their businesses and families. WBI was formed as a non-profit 501(c)3 in order to help women at every level and provide more services they need all in one place.

Our focus is on these five areas we identified as problematic for women and include:
Professional office space and business services
Quality drop-in childcare services.
Leadership training circles and mentorship
Micro-loans and access to financing
Classes and workshops

Wherever you are right now, the movement for racial justice is loud.

Things have changed and people are feeling the surge of make-it-happen, because there’s no going back. We are living and creating After Ferguson, Staten Island, Cleveland, Baltimore.

With leadership by people of color and an understanding of history, institutional racism and whiteness, people of all races, all genders, classes and nationalities, are helping to build a broad movement for racial justice. We are organizers, scientists, faith leaders, youth, artists, janitors, executives, philanthropists, grandmas, electeds, musicians, teachers, shop owners, chefs, brothers, lawyers, cashiers, journalists, neighbors and parents.

This Is How We Move is a multi-media collection of interviews with people who are actors in this broad movement for racial justice. It’s about how we – individuals and groups – move differently, how we move others, and how we move together to create the change we want to see. Each one of us has roles to play in ending the centuries-long patterns of systemic racism that oppress communities of color, widen the economic divide and deprive all of us of our humanity.

Between June 2 and July 21, 2015, we will post interviews with presenters in the #BlackLivesMatter_SEA Pecha Kucha series, a collaboration between Pecha Kucha Night Seattle, Northwest African American Museum and Seattle People of Color Salon. Like this performance series, This Is How We Move aims to amplify the voices of people who are situated differently in this movement, to show and inspire pathways to justice.

This Is How We Move is a labor of love by June Nho Ivers, Diana Falchuk, Leilani Lewis, Davida Ingram and Ana Pinto da Silva.
