Kimberly Thomas, M. Ed. grew up in Tacoma, graduated from Lincoln High, and works for equity in education. She has a message for us! Brew a cup of coffee and sit down for a conversation with Kim. We’ll explore gentrification. We’ll talk about Kim’s mixed feelings about homeownership, and - on the lighter side- her favorite places in Tacoma.
July is all about celebration in Tacoma! We celebrate Tacoma Pride (yes, it’s finally time for the Tacoma Pride Festival!), We celebrate cultural diversity, food, music, art, history, and a brand new park; we celebrate summer. So here you go, over 21 ways to celebrate the Tacoma community this month.
Here we go again! Plunge into the Salish Sea, visit the newest wing of the TAM, take a family nature walk, strengthen and calm with yoga, discover local makers at the Night Markets, repair at a Fix-it Fair, clean-up the beach with your community, and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with the City of Tacoma. There’s more. There’s a whole list to help you celebrate the start of 2019.
