Cultivating Community | A Tribute to the Memory and Legacy of Dr. King

We are honored to welcome everyone to a vibrant digital experience “Cultivating a Beloved Community Mindset to Transform Unjust Systems” on behalf of UW Medicine and all the UW Health Sciences.

Together, we are proud to support this annual celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. where we recognize not only one of the greatest figures in our nation’s history, but also the members of our own community who have dedicated themselves to lives of service.

We created this website to share our traditions with the broader community and those who cannot join us in person. Here you will find inspiring stories, powerful music and a sense of hope and community.

We would like to thank the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute Committee members who worked very hard to put together this dynamic and engaging website. The group is made up of staff and faculty from the six health sciences schools and UW Medicine.

Thank you for joining us in elevating the transformative power of Dr. King’s memory and legacy, which lives on in our community and within each of us.
