‘Humanity not Hatred’ event July 17 at McCollum Park

Jul 09, 2014

The community is invited to the third annual Brisenia Flores “Humanity not Hatred” event this July at McCollum Park in south Everett.

The celebration runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 17, at McCollum Park, 600 N. 128th St. in south Everett and is sponsored by the Snohomish County Human Rights Commission. Parking is in the park-and-ride lot immediately adjacent.

The “Humanity not Hatred” event is a community ice cream social focused on activities for all ages. Community members can listen to live music and short speeches, play games, get their faces painted and make arts and crafts.

Families are invited to bring a picnic and celebrate families in the community, as well as have the chance to learn more about human rights in Snohomish County.

The “Humanity not Hatred” event began three years ago as a way to recognize Brisenia Flores who was killed at the age of 9 by a hate group founded in Everett.

The Human Rights Commission and its community partners honor Brisenia by creating opportunities for residents to come together positively to learn more about each other and how we can support all residents of Snohomish County.

Interpreter and translation services for non-English speakers and accommodations for those with disabilities are available upon request. Make arrangements in advance by contacting Sherry Cuddy at 425-388-7308 or sherry.cuddy@snoco.org.
