PROTEC17 staff and members joined the Seattle MLK Jr. Coalition and other community groups at the 40th annual MLK Day Rally and March on Jan. 17. The Coalition aims to keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive, and to remind civic leaders that the struggle for equity is ongoing. The rally is also a celebration of Black art, music, and culture. 

The theme of this year’s event was ‘Truth in Education Now’ and served as a call to teach and elevate Black history as an integral part of American history. 

Despite the pandemic, hundreds of people turned out to celebrate, following safety and COVID-19 precautions at the rally at Garfield High School and along the march route ending in downtown Seattle. 

PROTEC17 is proud to support this annual, joyful event. You can find more upcoming events to participate in on our website at:
