Title:Seattle's Civil Rights organizations

Over the course of the twentieth century, dozens of organizations have contributed to the struggle for civil rights in the Seattle region. Some, like the NAACP, Urban League, Japanese Americans Citizens League, and the United Farm Workers, continue the work today. Others came and went, making contributions that can be too easily forgotten if we are careless with our past. This page, researched and written by Trevor Griffey, serves as a gateway to the organizational history of civil rights activism in Washington State. The links ... lead to brief descriptions of each of these organizations, listed according to the decade of their founding.
