This Satuday, Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 14, 2011

Marting Luther King Jr. Day falls this monday; however, if you want to pay tribute early, join us at Seattle Center on Saturday, January 15th, for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Celebration, 1-3 PM.

This celebration commemorates the dream of Dr. King by promoting the principles of peace, unity and equality.  It also provides an opportunity for Seattle citizens to remember the dream and vision of MLK, and honors citizens who are energizing the MLK dream in their communities.

In addition, this year the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative will present the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Awards.  Through this partnership with Seattle Center, these awards were created to recognize the efforts of youth and youth-serving organizations to reduce and prevent youth violence in Seattle. 

See you there!
