Families of Color Seattle

FOCS has been successful because of our commitment to grassroots community building and strong, supportive networks. Given this, our next leader will flourish if their leadership style is collective, asset- affirming, and flexible. Our next leader should have high emotional intelligence and an ability to foster connections amongst communities of color.
