Madrona Marches on MLK Day

  • Bottom of Garfield HS Steps 400 23rd Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

Join the Madrona Contingent for the 37th Annual MLK Day March!

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21st, but many members of the Madrona Community will participate in the MLK Day March from Garfield High School to Westlake Park.  We will meet at the bottom of the Garfield High School steps at 12:15pm and begin marching as a group behind our Madrona banner around 12:30pm.  Whether you walk for the entire event or just a few blocks, marching together can be a powerful statement of solidarity with our school and larger community.

This year’s theme is “Affirmative Action = Justice.” The Seattle MLK Jr. Organizing Coalition will have signs featuring the theme available for free at the event, but homemade signs are also encouraged and can be a fun way to include and inspire students to activism! The organizing coalition has planned an entire day of events honoring Dr. King.  For more information about the event, visit: https://www.seattlemlkcoalition.org/.
