MLK Week

About MLK Week

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his legacy of strength, resilience and compassion are a worldwide touchstone of civic responsibility and action. This January, we invite you to honor his memory and the contributions of others who stand for justice by participating in University of Washington’s MLK Week.

Help us spread the word and carry on Dr. King’s legacy by sharing information about MLK Week events — scheduled between January 12 and 24 — with your UW communities.
