Seattle Martin Luther King Jr. Coalition Rally & March

January 15 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm

RSVP below to join a UW Medicine meetup group for the rally!

From Seattle MLK Coalition website:

There have been over 400 years of oppression of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color; which includes human trafficking, enslavement, genocide, torture, disenfranchisement, segregation, imprisonment, dispossession of land, and so much more, and yet none of this has ever broken the spirit of our Peoples to achieve justice and equity.

2024 marks forty-one years that the residents of Seattle and King County have and continue to honor the legacy and the mission of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a rally, march, internship, workshops, youth-led programming, and job fair. The first forty years were but the beginning. Seattle’s annual MLK celebration aims to inspire this and future generations to live up to Dr. King’s dream of achieving the Beloved Community.

This year, we are coming together on the anniversary of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, honoring the past and the countless champions who came before, stood alongside, and have continued after King was taken from us, fighting for both our present and our future because “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
