Seattle Center's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Celebration celebrates the dream of Dr. King by promoting the principles of peace, unity and equality, providing an opportunity for Seattle citizens to remember the dream and vision of MLK, and honoring citizens who are energizing the MLK dream in their communities. Join us for a full afternoon of awards, activities and entertainment in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Award recognizes and celebrates outstanding young people and youth organizations that promote community, peace, leadership, justice and civil rights in the spirit of the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This year Seattle Center invited the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative to be a partner in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Awards. Through this partnership the MLK Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Awards were created to recognize the efforts of youth and youth-serving organizations to reduce and prevent youth violence in Seattle.
