Today, we went to visit the international district and its recently formed nonprofit organization as well as other organizations such as WILD, wilderness international leadership program. Walking the streets of Seattle, International District made me realized that sometimes there are people with less advantages than we do, but advocacy is nothing to belittle. Just like your teachers and professors at school and your advisors, the people in charge wouldn't know about your problems or your communities' problem until people address their issue. In the international district, the wild group and sidpda demonstrated this by working with seniors from SROS to protect their parks and public spaces. They gathered seniors to help create successful community meeting as well as holding an alleyway feast.
Although the Hing Hay park and Dragon park of the International district in Seattle are quite small and less attractive compared to the Portsmouth Square and Willie Woo Woo park of the San Francisco Chinatown, groups like ideal and wild have been implementing resources to improve their park and community.
