  • Solidarity, support, and commitment to act

    To our cherished PNA community... One week ago, George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis, MN. The Phinney Neighborhood Association wants to acknowledge, affirm, and support members of the Black community in their anguish, anger, weariness, and trauma over such state-sanctioned violence against Mr. Floyd and countless others, like Said Joquin who was killed on May 1 in Lakewood, WA in his car–with his hands up–by police who pulled him over for running a stop sign. These are merely some of the horrifying examples of Black people being killed because they are Black; while we now have more footage, these heinous acts have been ongoing for hundreds of years.

    We love our community!

    We have seen our community come together in a big way before—when the Greenwood explosion happened—and we feel honored that once again you have rallied; this time for the PNA. So many folks—from life-long PNA members to names who are new to us—have believed in the future of the PNA, and we are grateful and humbled. Our community has generously given $104,188 to our Don't Stop Believin' campaign to date and another $25,664 during the GiveBIG appeal, nearly reaching our first milestone of $135,000! If you helped us get there, thank you so much. ...
