Do you want to help plan the 2020 MLK Day event?
Our next meeting is on October 22nd at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, 104 17th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144!
Thank you all so much the 2019 event was a success!
Last years event was a success! We created one of our largest events to date!
Hundreds of job seekers visited the 50-plus exhibitors at our Opportunity Fair;
A thousand people attended our 24 Workshops;
We had 2 inspirational rallies before and after the march of over 2000 community members!
Many of our marchers returned to
Garfield High School for a community meal.
Our colleagues in the Initiative 1000 campaign to restore Affirmative Action submitted more than 387,000 signatures to the secretary of state’s office, well over the number needed to qualify the initiative. The Legislature can now approve the measure or send it to the voters in November.
We will continue to support this Initiative to help get equal opportunity in education, jobs, and contracting.
It is with heavy hearts we dedicate the 2019 march to the memory of two trailblazing Sheroes.
The Central District legend and business owner,
Charlene “DeCharlene” Williams
The first woman to chair the A. Phillip Randolph Institute,
Verlene Jones Davis
We exist thanks to the generosity of community members like you. Please support our efforts with time, money, and in-kind.
This year the Seattle MLK organizing Coalition is ecstatic to partner with “Seattle Womxn Marching Forward” we are co-organizing a weekend of marching, rallying, workshopping, and healing, to help us all renew and plug in to the resistance. Take a look at their site here.
*Womxn with an “X” includes anyone who considers themselves a woman, and all non-binary / gender-non-conforming folks. Learn more here.
