SESEC’s membership is primarily composed of organizations whose services focus on Southeast Seattle and/or where the majority of their clients are students and families of color. Individual members primarily work, live, or have ties to SE Seattle. We recognize that economic and systemic circumstances have led individuals and organizations to leave the area, and we invite anyone interested in membership to reach out to us.
