Stronger Together Event
BUILDING UNITY THROUGH COMMUNITY
Saturday, May 16, 2020
The first annual Stronger Together, a multi-community cultural event, is about exploring surface, shallow and deep cultures that we each bring to our communities. We will be building unity through community dialogue, activities, education, entertainment, food and fun. During Stronger Together, attendees will experience culture, they will explore their own culture, and they will have many opportunities to interact with and celebrate the cultures from our communities.
The main event that is happening on May 16, downtown in the City of Arlington at Legion Park.
Community will come together for activities and discussions that highlight: How we are the same? How we are different? How that makes us stronger.
We are involving three municipal communities and two tribal communities in our event, the City of Arlington, the Town of Darrington, the Community of Lakewood, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, and the Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe.
