“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing to help others?’”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This year, make MLK a day on, not a day off, by volunteering with the Green Seattle Partnership! Help to move us toward Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of a beloved community by getting outside and giving back to one of your favorite Seattle Parks. Check out the list of events below to find a chance to get out into your community, meet your neighbors, and connect with your local greenspaces.
