Due to COVID-19, Tacoma is facing a projected loss of approximately 4,000 summer program slots that provide safe and supportive spaces for many of Tacoma’s Black and Brown youth. That’s why Downtown On the Go’s board and staff have joined Graduate Tacoma and many, many others to show our commitment to the support and safety of Tacoma’s youth.
When you participate in a DOTG event, you are entering a space that is committed to the support and safety of Tacoma’s Black and Brown youth.
The Community Commitment for Safe Youth aims to inform and hold residents, law enforcement, and government leaders accountable to the safety of Black and Brown youth.
Our purpose is to be an advocate for anyone whose daily life is downtown, and part of that is a commitment to the support and safety of Tacoma’s youth. When you are participating in the 2020 Walk Tacoma Scavenger Hunt and traveling throughout downtown, we invite you to be a part of #CompassionateTacoma and to advocate for the safety of Tacoma’s Black and Brown youth.
Join us in making Tacoma a more welcoming, connected, resilient and vibrant community.
