Civic Coffee is a monthly event by Seattle Human Services where older people can meet community leaders and local government officials, ask questions and provide feedback. It is produced in partnership with The Seattle Public Library and was originally slated to take place at the Central Branch. Interpretation is offered by advance request (via email@example.com). See links at the top of this page for topics and to join online, by phone or in-person, or to download event flyers in multiple languages.
Why it Matters
Older adults deserve the opportunity to interact directly with decision-makers at City Hall and the community, no matter their location and ability to travel. Civic participation, social participation, and discourse are important components of health and well-being.
