Honoring MLK Jr. Day

Honor Dr. King Through Service

Stay tuned for details on next year’s event!

Week of January 16, 2023

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we’ve continued to adapt how we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy.

In 2022:

  • 683 volunteers showed up to support 24 organizations at 25 projects.
  • 60+ volunteers attended “Showing up for Youth: A Virtual Volunteer Event” yesterday during the lunch hour. They heard from four fantastic panelists about the power of mentoring/tutoring, and what it really means to show up for youth.
  • We continued our tradition of supporting the Seattle MLK Coalition’s Rally & March.
  • 532 attended our virtual Advancing Racial Equity event with New York Times best-selling author, Clint Smith.

United Way of King County is committed to honoring Dr. King’s legacy for years to come. Though these last few years have been different from the past, we fully expect to return to our tradition of making this day a day of service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy!
