Episode 11 - Location, Location, Location by MOHAI published on 2020-08-20T20:03:16Z The now gone but fondly remembered Kingdome stadium came into being in the 1970s as a result of a package of ballot initiatives called Forward Thrust. Although the proposal to build a new stadium did well at the polls, finding a place to put it proved more than difficult. When its location near King Street was decided, community activists in the Chinatown International District pushed back, sparking a larger neighborhood preservation movement whose work and legacy still continues today. Hear from special guest Gary Iwamoto about this era of activism and the founding of InterIm CDA, an affordable housing and community development organization.
