Honor Civil Rights Leader Edwin T. Pratt in Shoreline Washington

This petition had 170 supporters

Edwin T. Pratt was an accomplished civil rights leader and the director of the Seattle Urban League.  He stood up for school desegregation and fair housing.  He moved with his wife and young daughter to Shoreline Washington, a suburb of Seattle, to set an example of how we can all be neighbors.  He was assassinated on the doorstep of his home in January of 1969.  

He was an important person and he had a huge impact on others.

The purpose of this petition is to honor Edwin T. Pratt by naming or renaming a Shoreline School District building/school after him.  My name is Sarah and I am a third grader in the Shoreline School District. I would love to see this happen in my community.
