Join city and community leaders at Shoreline Community College as the City of Shoreline proclaims January 30th as the Edwin T. Pratt Day of Remembrance, celebrating the life of local civil rights leader Edwin T. Pratt (1930-1969). 

Before his tragic assassination in 1969, Mr. Pratt served as the Executive Director of the Seattle Urban League. He worked tirelessly on the desegregation of Seattle Public Schools, fair housing initiatives, and other critical advancements in civil rights. In 2023 the City of Shoreline established a tradition of annually proclaiming January 30th as the Edwin T. Pratt Day of Remembrance.

The event will feature remarks from local civil rights leaders, city officials, and others with special knowledge of Mr. Pratt's legacy.

Refreshments will be prepared and served by students from the Shorecrest High School culinary arts program.
