Photo of “Move & Be Moved” Social Justice Social Continues Building Dr. King’s Vision

Kitsap ERACE Coalition and community partners invite you to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the “Move & Be Moved” Social Justice Social, Friday, January 13th, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA), 550 Winslow Way E, Bainbridge Island. This annual event gathers community for a night of sharing resources, strategy, camaraderie, and joy, all in service of realizing Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community striving for justice. There is no cost to attend the social.

“Move & Be Move” will fill the first floor of BIMA, with multiple spaces dedicated to a variety of opportunities for connection and inspiration. Groups and organizations will share resources and offer information on how to come alongside their social justice endeavors. Interactive elements will offer fun ways for attendees to explore and connect. Smaller “living room” conversation spaces will invite deeper discussion into relevant topics. Music and an open floor will get us dancing. Food will be available to enjoy in a covered area of the open-air courtyard, so that we can all help prevent the spread of COVID and other viruses. Drinks and cookies will be available for free, and Aunt Dolly’s West African Marketplace will be on-site with delicious fare for purchase. Masks are strongly recommended in all indoor spaces, and free masks will be offered at the door to any attendees who need them.

Groups and organizations committed to social justice are encouraged to represent at the “Move & Be Moved” Social Justice Social. Spaces are limited; visit here before January 4th to request a spot. Each confirmed group or organization will be assigned a chair and 3’x3’ table space to set up to connect with community. The groups’ and organizations’ displays should center on and celebrate the event theme:

  • MOVE – Think about the purpose of your group. How does it relate to social justice? Use your table space to let people know what moves your group to advance social justice and build beloved community.
  • BE MOVED – Think about how community can come alongside your work. Use your table space to let people know how to get involved in your efforts to advance social justice.

More information on all the community-planned Dr. ML King Jr. weekend events being held at BIMA can be found on Facebook.
