Join our favorite multi-racial, multi-generational, multi-issue annual celebration of the inspiring life and vison of Martin Luther King on Monday, Jan. 20th at Garfield H.S. 400 23rd Ave. in Seattle.
The event is a reminder that MLK was far more than a civil rights leader. He challenged all to overcome the triple threats of racism, economic exploitation and war. This event is a fun, fascinating way to learn and show your support for so many people working for peace & racial, economic and social justice. At SSCAN we recognize that to achieve environmental justice we must achieve racial justice.
You can start at 9:30 am by choosing from more than twenty fascinating workshops including: MLK & Militarism, Poor People’s Campaign Songwriting for Social Justice, Bystander Intervention, Using Political Theatre to expose & dismantle symbols of systemic oppression and many more. Then at 11:00 am join the rally in the gym, and then march downtown at 12:30 pm. For more info, go to www.seattlemlkcoalition.org
It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.
—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), Christmas Eve sermon, 1967
