On May 21, 2022, mayor Harrell will be launching Seattle's One Day of Service. The intention of the inaugural One Day of Service is to reimplement community values such as service, cooperation, and inclusion. This event welcomes the participation of Seattle residents.
With the many transitions Seattle residents have faced over the past two years, repairing the community is necessary.
