The (at-will) workers of SAM for transparency and decolonization.
Seattle Art Museum has installed hostile architecture and is in the process of hiring security contractors to keep unhoused people off SAM property. We consider this classist, ableist, and a violation of SAM’s stated values. They have also accused employees of breaking contract for organizing against these policies. Please submit a comment on the SAM website to encourage leadership to use this budget for community care and harm reduction based alternatives and to rescind threats to organizer employment.
