overview

Antiracism, diversity, inclusion, equity, and good sportsmanship are among the many core values that have defined Seattle United for the past decade. We are both humbled by and proud of the myriad of cultures, races, faiths, genders and other social communities represented within our club. It is in this way that we are united.

As such, respect for others is a fundamental condition to our culture and membership, while at the same time we understand there remains work to be done. In order to formally embrace that culture, Seattle United has announced the formation of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Committee.
