Beacon Hill Safe Streets, Central Seattle Greenways, and Rainier Valley Greenways are collaborating on a workshop:

Greenways not Redlines, at MLK Jr Day
Monday, Jan 20, from 9:30 to 10:50
Garfield High School (400 23rd Ave, Seattle, at Jefferson).

The theme is transportation infrastructure equity, and it will have 4 discussion stations, including ones on history of redlining and how that plays out in on-going transportation inequalities, another on street safety data, and another on opportunities for engagement.

We invite you to the workshop, and to participate in all the other activities over the course of the day! More information here:

MLK Jr. Day  

We look forward to seeing you at the 38th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! The day will begin at 8:30 AM at Garfield High School with an Opportunity Fair and Workshops, developed to inspire us to affect change in ourselves and our community. Our Rally Program starting at 11 AM, includes speakers, music, and dance that celebrates our unique diaspora of culture and community, and shines a light on the creativity of those living in our own backyard. Our March to City Hall at 12:30, demands that our politicians and civic leaders use their 20/20 vision to see us and to make change in our city. Finally, we thank all who attended with a Community Meal, back at Garfield High School (buses back to Garfield will be available for all who attend the rally).  

MLK Jr. Day 2020 Workshops

All 2020 workshops will be taking place at Garfield High School. Workshops begin at 9:30 AM and go until 11 AM. They will be hosted at the same time as the Opportunity Fair (8:30 AM to 11:30 AM) so if you’re at Garfield, be sure to check out both, before the Program and March!


Why are some streets comfortable to walk on while others feel like death traps? Why are people more likely to die from traffic collisions in some parts of the region? How can we create equitable access to safe streets for people in all our communities? Join the presenters to explore connections to place and mobility, learn about the current inequities, and find ways to help create the streets our communities need.
