He not only fought to end the war in Vietnam, the expansion of Civil Rights, that non-violent protesting can be effective, and that love is more powerful than hate, but he also fought against poverty ; especially near the end of his life.  Taken from his book, 'Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?' "We have come a long way in our understanding of human motivation and of the blind operation of our economic system. Now we realize that dislocations in the market operation of our economy and the prevalence of discrimination thrust people into idleness and bind them in constant or frequent unemployment against their will. The poor are less often dismissed from our conscience today by being branded as inferior and incompetent. We also know that no matter how dynamically the economy develops and expands it does not eliminate all poverty. [...] The problem indicates that our emphasis must be two-fold. We must create full employment or we must create incomes. People must be made consumers by one method or the other. Once they are placed in this position, we need to be concerned that the potential of the individual is not wasted. New forms of work that enhance the social good will have to be devised for those for whom traditional jobs are not available." We, as a society, have a responsibility to alleviate poverty and suffering. Living in a city that proclaims to have progressive values, Seattle homelessness continues to ramp up exponentially while the city's wealth is greater than ever before. People muse about how construction cranes are the state bird because so much housing is being developed. Yet, more and more people end up out on the street. I hope today we can remember all of King's messages and apply them to our modern context.  #blacklivesmatter #blm #mlk #seattle #washington #fuckdonaldtrump  We are looking at you, #jennydurkan

Yesterday was an amazing day for the Seattle Waterfront. Mayor Jenny Durkan joined us for the groundbreaking of Pier 62: The People's Pier, the first piece of the waterfront park to open in 2019. Also, the Union Street Mural dedication for Trades of the Duwamish by artist Katherine Chilcote took place. History Link's Jennifer Ott provided attendees with a short history of Seattle's waterfront, and Story Kiosk — a platform for sharing memories and ideas — was on hand to gather people's waterfront stories. 🌊 . . . #pier62 #groundbreaking #mural #unionstreetmural #workingwaterfront #jennydurkan #mayorjennydurkan #seawaterfront #seattleite #seattle #katherinechilcote #cityofseattle #portofseattle #friendsofwaterfrontseattle #waterfrontseattle #thepeoplespier #duwamish #waterfrontseattle #buildingbridges #workingwaterfront #waterfrontpark #mightyseattle #waterfronthistory #historylink #storykiosk #collectingstories #storytelling #waterfrontstories

Jenny Durkan took the helm of the country’s 18th largest city Tuesday. And with Seattle’s top job comes tough policy choices for the new mayor, including decisions regarding the city’s affordable-housing crunch, neighborhoods concerned with upzones and density, and a growing homeless crisis. The former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, appointed by President Barack Obama, and the first female mayor in Seattle in nearly a century, Durkan already has a number of policy proposals pitched during the primary, including free community-college tuition to public high-school graduates and a transportation future that has less cars.  She joins the Times for Facebook Live Q&A: https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/politics/facebook-live-qa-join-new-seattle-mayor-jenny-durkan-130-p-m-thursday/ #seattle #jennydurkan
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan signed an order to expand free community college to two years for students.  Let’s encourage other cities to follow their lead. Add your name to show your support for #freecommunitycollege!
Mayor Jenny Durkan was sworn in at the @winglukemuseum on Tuesday. She makes history as Seattle's first lesbian mayor and the first woman mayor in almost 100 years. At the swearing-in ceremony, Durkan said the Donnie Chin murder case will be one of the first briefings she will receive as mayor. “We will keep you informed. We know that that was the loss not just of a person, but of a part of this community, and I will keep it in the forefront.” #seaelex #jennydurkan #seattlemayor #justice4donnie
