About SUM

Launched in June 2011, Seattle Urban Media is a website that connects visitors to the diverse communities in Seattle and the surrounding communities.

Visitors to SUM have an opportunity to learn more about the news and cultural events taking place in the region. You can find very diverse stories that feature a variety of topics and individu...als (perhaps with a twist) along with interviews featuring some of the nation's most provocative business and community leaders. A diverse group of contributors, writers, and special guest authors address hot topics on SUM. Visitors to SUM also have a voice and are encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions.

SUM is the spot where various opinions are shared and a place where you can find solutions to some of the problems plaguing the diverse communities. Stories and features on PUM also encourage visitors to find ways to give back to their community by "Being the Change."

Oh yeah, SUM also provides the celebrity interviews and global news that will keep you informed about what is happening in the world.

SUM is all about celebrating our differences and embracing our diversity, and we hope you are encouraged to learn and grow from all cultures.

SUM provides a Gateway to the Diverse Communities by offering visitors uncensored news that will enlighten, educate and unite our communities through the power of the internet.
