Youth-organized March to Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 13, 2024
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the public to join a youth-organized march to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Saturday, Jan. 13. Participants will gather at 9 a.m. at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Park, 2200 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way. Teens will lead the march to Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, 104 17th Ave. S.
This is SPR’s 21st annual youth march and this year’s theme is “Passing Along Our Past”. Teens, families, and community members from throughout the city will speak out against injustices in a peaceful demonstration. The goal for the march is to celebrate the contributions that Seattle youth make in creating a better city, and to honor the work that youth do to keep Dr. King’s dream alive.
At the event, participants will hear from keynote speakers in our community. Young people will then participate in youth-designed workshops meant to challenge and raise social awareness. The celebration will conclude with live performances and dinner.
This event is FREE to all teens and community participants and will include food, live music, a safe environment, and plenty of fun!
