Reminder: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, January 11 

King County employees are invited to attend the annual King County Martin Luther King Jr. event from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. this Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Sanctuary, located at 811 5th Ave. in downtown Seattle.

Many employees in downtown Seattle work within walking distance of the event venue, and we encourage you to walk or take public transit. The building has an ADA accessible entrance on 5th Ave. and an attendant will be standing by to offer assistance to anyone who should require it. We encourage employees coming from outside downtown Seattle to look at transit and carpool options.

Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. King, we look forward to an afternoon of reflection and celebration of his legacy and what it means in King County today.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration is a County-sponsored event and King County directors, managers, and supervisors are encouraged to permit employees to participate, if possible. Read King County’s HR Bulletin regarding employee attendance at County-sponsored events for more information. Your attendance is of course voluntary.
