Seattle Globalist

GroupAccount image

The Seattle Globalist is a daily “hyperglobal” publication covering the connections between Seattle and the rest of the globe. It’s where Seattle meets the world.

Seattle is a city with a big worldview. Named a “hyper-diverse city” by the Migration Policy Institute, more than a quarter of Seattle residents are foreign-born. Seattleites are exceptionally well traveled and the city is home to a bustling economy of businesses and nonprofits whose impact is felt across the globe.

The Globalist features travel writing from a Northwest perspective, restaurant and music reviews, a calendar of cultural events, and perspectives on global news from Seattle’s international population. Behind this layer of content is a robust community of Globalists—travelers, immigrants, global health workers, students, foreign film buffs, foodies— all the Seattleites who identify as “Globalists.”

Our mission is to create a hub for globally-oriented people in the Pacific Northwest through accessible journalism that highlights international diversity and global connections in our region, and by providing media-making opportunities with an emphasis on diverse voices.
