“Take a Knee for Justice” was the theme of the day.

On an unseasonably warm and sunny day, thousands of people in Seattle joined workshops, rallies, and a march celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. As usual, the event began at Garfield High School with a career fair, workshops, a rally, and the start of a march that would wind its way through the Central District and First Hill/Capitol Hill to Westlake Park.

The theme of the day was “Take a Knee for Justice” and the crowd did indeed take a knee when they arrived at the Seattle Police Department’s east precinct at 12th & Pine.

See more coverage at the Capitol Hill Seattle blog. They have lots of great photos from Alex Garland and also posted the video below.

More good stuff to come this week, including a mass meeting for the Washington Poor People’s Campaign and the second Womxn’s March and workshops. See our calendar for details.
