CTC’s “All Hands and Hearts” Community Wall 

CTC will offer families and staff the opportunity to share and reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. throughout the month of January at each of our four locations in Burien, Kent, Maple Valley, and Tacoma. Join us by sharing YOUR dream or vision for an engaged, supportive and connected community!

We’ll provide the materials to decorate the wall – you provide the inspiration. Here are some prompts to get you started:

  • What do you love about your community?
  • How can you spread love and kindness?
  • Think about or reflect on an injustice you’ve recently witnessed – how can you interrupt that kind of injustice in the future?
  • What ideas do you have for a 2024 MLK Day community event at CTC?

Let’s all use this space to begin visualizing and cultivating a future towards the Beloved Community that Dr. King envisioned, where “all people can share in the wealth of the earth.”
