“Live the Change We Seek” is the title of a grassroots campaign organized to promote full and equal inclusion in liberties guaranteed to all citizens in Snoqualmie Valley and beyond.

Organizers are launching the campaign on Monday, Jan. 16, 2 to 3:30 p.m. as part of a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. birthday celebration at Snoqualmie United Methodist Church, 38701 River St. in historic downtown Snoqualmie.

Snoqualmie Valley residents will stand together on the holiday celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and honor his legacy with a commitment to live the change we seek, campaign organizers said.

Headlining the launch event is Washington state Poet Laureate Tod Marshall, along with Crosscut News Site contributors Rebekah Demirel and Sinan Demirel.

In addition to writing for Crosscut, Sinan is a well known author and leading activist in King County’s movement to end homelessness. Additional special guest participants include Pastor Lee Carney Hartman and Valley Center Stage founder Gary Schwartz. The event also features live music, an art exhibit and a Melting Potluck Tasting Table.

This event is free to the public.
