We Heart Seattle is dedicated to getting more of Seattle engaged, informed, and voting through a community walk through Seattle on October 21, 2023, from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We Heart Seattle is an action-based, boots-on-the-ground movement that organizes trash cleanups in our public spaces and offers resources to those in need. The non-profit organization leads to a more compassionate and healthy community through direct civic engagement.

As part of its action-based movement for a more beautiful and safer Seattle, We Heart Seattle invites Seattleites to join the organization on October 21st from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a day of voter activation in anticipation of the Nov. 7th general election.

Walk participants will start at Hing Hay Park by 9:45 a.m. in the China-International District (CID). Participants can choose to walk the entire 5.7 miles through downtown Seattle to Ballard. This will be a fun yet challenging urban hike – and organizers welcome scooters, bikers, or runners to join in on the walk.

Others may want to join the walk at Bell Street Park and gather at the voter registration booth at 10:45 a.m. or the Counterbalance Park in lower Queen Anne at 11:15 a.m.

From there, walkers will continue to upper Queen Anne, stopping at Dick’s Burgers. The final few miles will cut through the Queen Anne neighborhood, then to the Ballard Bridge, where walkers will cross and end at Bickersons Brewhouse at 12:15 p.m. or after 1514 NW Leary Way in Ballard. The event will end at 2:00 p.m.

Commemorative shirts will be handed out at the walk’s beginning, middle, and end.

Voting is fun and your superpower. Please bring a friend or family member, and let’s walk on October 21, 2023 and remember to vote!
