MLK Week

“Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”

— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join the University of Washington community as we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy; honor the work of generations of everyday activists; and rededicate ourselves to creating a just and equitable future for all. We encourage each member of the University community to observe the MLK Day holiday in a way that is personally meaningful.

This website offers information about community events around the holiday, as well as suggested resources to extend your learning and deepen your connection to current justice movements.
