The mayor of Wenatchee, Frank Kuntz, and the mayor of East Wenatchee, Jerrilea Crawford, read and signed the Stand Against Racism Proclamation at recent city council meetings. This year is especially amazing, as this is the first year that the City of East Wenatchee has signed the Stand Against Racism Proclamation. This proclamation is a way for our cry for racial and social justice to reach the community – including residents, local businesses, educators, and community and faith-based organizations to celebrate diversity and advocate for the elimination of racism.
