InterIm CDA Launches Voices of the CID Today

Seattle – InterIm Community Development Association kicks off a social media series today that highlights with pictures and short narratives life in Chinatown-International District (CID) in Seattle, WA.

The series is called “Voices of the CID”. It can be followed on InterIm CDAs Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages:

Each week moving forward through May, InterIm CDA will feature photos and corresponding interview excerpts from community members who live and/or work in the CID. The series brings attention to one of Seattle’s most historically ethnically diverse and low-income neighborhoods in order to demonstrate the daily experience of being a member of this community.
The communications campaign seeks to capture through individual interviews an overall narrative that shows the compassion of those who care deeply about preserving quality of life here. It will emphasize the value of maintaining affordable housing, public safety, a strong business district and a healthy environment in which to live, work and socialize.
Coordinating Voices of the CID on behalf of InterIm CDA are Derek Ishihara and Valerie Tran, both InterIm CDA staff members. For more information, contact Jill Wasberg, Resource Development and Marketing Manager, at InterIm CDA.
