Join SAF for its upcoming "Design in Depth" event focusing on Capitol Hill.

Can this welcome density and diversity be integrated into the neighborhood without losing its architectural character? Guest speakers include: Michael Oaksmith, Director of Development at Hunters Capital; Chuck Wolfe, Land Use Attorney, Writer, Blogger, Professor; Jeff Reibman, Principal, Weber Thompson; Michael Sullivan, Principal, Artifacts, Inc; and Eugenia Woo, Director of Preservation Services at Historic Seattle.

  Book Talk Double-Feature: Jake Rosenfeld, What Unions No Longer Do and Hedrick Smith, Reclaiming the American Dream
The presence of strong, organized labor has historically been linked with less inequality. From their post-WWII peak to present day, the decline of labor unions has had a concrete effect on economic and political equality. What Unions No Longer Do explores this concept, highlighting the positive contributions unions have made over time to society by strengthening the middle class and improving workplace fairness. Author Jake Rosenfeld, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Washington, emphasizes the negative effects caused by our modern-day lack of unions. Pulitzer Prize-winner Hedrick Smith’s 2012 Who Stole the American Dream? explored the title’s often-asked question, giving a definitive history of when, how, and why the “American Dream” fell apart. Smith’s book looked at the political and economic changes of the past 40 years, pinpointing moments in history where wrong turns were taken. The beginnings of 401(k), policy changes under popular presidents, and economics behind some of the country’s most powerful CEOs are all analyzed in his bestselling book. Now, he turns his lens on current economic and policy trends unfolding across the country, with an emphasis on recent developments in Washington State such as the Boeing labor union story. Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca Street), Seattle, WA 98101. Tickets $5.

  Opening the County: The History of Military Road - Maple Valley Historical Society
Historian Karen Meador will present a PowerPoint program on the history of King County's oldest road. What is known in South King County as Military Road is, in fact, part of the Fort Steilacoom-Fort Bellingham Road constructed under the supervision of the U.S. Army, which included a number of future Civil War generals, in the late 1850s. Although the name has changed outside South King County, the route remains largely unchanged from the six-foot-wide wagon road constructed on the eve of the Civil War. As a wagon road carved out of the wilderness over 150 years ago, Military Road encouraged settlement and commerce throughout its length, a legacy that continues today. Hosted by the Maple Valley Historical Society at the Hobart Community Church; 27524 SE 200th St, Maple Valley, WA 98038 (off the Highway 18 Issaquah-Hobart Exit.)
