#5 Community Stories: Honor Totem [Captioned] 5/5/2014
This poignant documentary chronicles the John T. Williams Memorial Totem Pole project as a catalyst for healing and justice. The community art project rose from the August 2010 fatal police shooting of Williams, a First Nations woodcarver. The shooting sparked an outcry that extended beyond the city of Seattle and the native community. The slain man`s older brother Rick Williams chose a peaceful response through an ambitious endeavor to carve a 34-foot totem pole in honor of the Williams family`s artistic legacy and the memory of one of its most talented carvers. This version of the video has been captioned.

#17 City Inside/Out: Assisted Suicide 9/26/2008
This week`s City Inside/Out takes an in-depth look at Initiative 1000, which would allow mentally competent, terminally ill adults who have a life expectancy of 6 months or less to obtain and self-administer lethal medication. Till now, only Oregon has a law that allows assisted suicide. In 1991, a similar initiative failed in WA.

We take a look at both sides of this controversial debate and meet some individuals who have a personal stake in its outcome.
