Event Details

During the first part of this webinar, Andrea Caupain, the CEO of Byrd Barr Place, will discuss how the organization helps people move from poverty to self-sufficiency in Seattle, while helping build the political strength and economic wealth of the Black community statewide. Founded in 1964, and first known as the Central Area Motivation Program (CAMP), Byrd Barr Place offers essential services — food, shelter, warmth and financial tools — for neighbors in Seattle’s Central District to build stability and self-sufficiency.

Following the above presentation, Dr. Cassandra Jean, a public Sociologist interested in social and global stratification, vulnerability and victimology, and the response and recovery of marginalized communities, following disasters will share some of her research. She will also conduct a Q & A and discussion with Andrea Caupain, of Byrd Barr Place.
