Dear GV community,
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is this Monday, January 17th, and Global Visionaries is uniting with the greater Seattle community to celebrate Dr. King’s work toward racial equality, economic justice and nonviolence.
We invite you to join GV for a workshop, a rally and to walk in solidarity with us during the MLK March this Monday in Seattle. The day’s events will be as follows:
Workshop from 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Rally at 11 a.m.
This year the Rally program at Garfield High School will be moderated by Chynna Williams and Fletcher Bailey. There will be special performances by the Leschi Elementary Choir, El Centro Children’s Choir and PNW Drumline/NW Tap.
The MLK Celebration Committee will also honor the life, work and legacy of a longtime Committee member, the late Mr. Roberto Maestas. Roberto Maestas was a strong social justice advocate and founder of the Latino community center El Centro De La Raza, the building that hosts the GV office.
March at noon.
The 2011 MLK Day March route will begin at Garfield High School and conclude at the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building at 915 2nd Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101.
We would love to see you at the rally and march this Monday. If you would like to march with GV, please meet us in front of Garfield High School at the corner of 23rd Avenue and Cherry Street on the Cherry Street side at 10:50 a.m. Garfield HS is located at 400 23rd Avenue Seattle, WA 98122.
Please join Global Visionaries as we make a stand for social justice and celebrate the life and work of Dr. King. If you know you will attend, RSVP to Sophia Gardner at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know to look for you at the rally. If not, feel free to just show up. We will see you there!
“The problem of racism, the problem of economic exploitation, and the problem of war are all tied together. These are the triple evils that are interrelated.”
