In honor of Black History Month, Korsmo continues to recognize some of Tacoma’s leaders who have made history in our community. This week, we celebrate former Tacoma mayor and current Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland for years of public service. She attended Tacoma Public Schools and the University of Washington, then earned her MBA from Clark Atlanta University, a Historically Black College and University. Having served as Tacoma’s mayor from 2010 to 2018, Strickland recently became the first African American member of the United States Congress elected from the state of Washington. As a freshman member of the 117th United States Congress, Strickland is also the first member who is of both Korean and African American heritage, and one of the first three Korean American Congresswomen who all began their terms on the same day. ...

Thank you to everyone who participated in the YWCA Pierce County Home at Last Adopt-a-Home supplies drive! Today, Korsmo staff delivered a load of new home essentials to fully outfit one apartment in the new affordable housing facility in Tacoma. Items included bedding, rugs, towels, dishes, cooking utensils, and cleaning supplies (and a few Korsmo front loader toys and travel mugs). The unit is now move-in ready! We are excited for all YWCA Home at Last residents to move into their beautiful new apartments in March. ... See MoreSee Less

In honor of Black History Month, we are recognizing some local heroes. This week, we celebrate Harold G. Moss (1929–2020), a revered civil rights leader who served as Tacoma’s first African American mayor, elected in 1970, and the first African American member of Tacoma City Council for 13 years. Harold was a powerful voice in politics and social justice in Tacoma. Among his many accomplishments, he served as president of the Tacoma Branch of the NAACP and helped create The Tacoma Urban League. He was also the father of Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards. We encourage you to watch this video clip at the 20-minute mark for the City of Tacoma's tribute to Harold’s legacy. www.facebook.com/CityofTacoma/videos/1526986570827806 ... See MoreSee Less

Lawrence is an experienced diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) consultant who led a group of Korsmo staff through an intensive eight-week DEI training series last fall. He will soon be leading another group through the same program while providing additional guidance in our DEI initiatives. We look forward to learning more from Lawrence in the coming weeks! ...
