Western Washington Gets Real Latest Stories

Western Washington Gets Real is KIRO7’s commitment to having difficult conversations about systemic racism. We will dig deep into important issues; from housing, healthcare and education to policing, immigration, and voting.
Beyond just highlighting where or how racism exists, Western Washington Gets Real is a chance to learn from each other, to celebrate our differences, and create greater understanding. We’re committed to covering stories that matter to all members of our community, and to amplifying often marginalized voices. Everyone deserves to be heard.
On this page, you’ll find stories, resources and a chance to contribute to the conversation. We want to hear from you; upload your photos and videos to share your own racial and cultural heritage, and send us your story ideas to getsreal@kiro7.com.
