Mayor Harrell and community leaders commemorate lives lost to gun violence with new memorial garden space

On Friday, June 7, Mayor Harrell joined leaders in Seattle’s Black community and families of those impacted by gun violence to commemorate a new healing garden at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park. Following the Thursday shooting at Garfield High School, Mayor Harrell invited all members of the community to join this event and share in a community reflection on the tragic impacts of gun violence.

The new community garden at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Park is a partnership between Seattle Parks and Recreation, Clean Greens Farm & Market, the Black Agriculture Leadership Council, and the Seattle King County NAACP.
