Mukiltean of the Day

The Mukiltean of June 10, 2020, is Heidie Sharpe, who organized chalk art in honor of people who have been killed by police brutality.

Last Thursday, Heidie organized to bring people together to honor those people who have been killed by police brutality by writing their names on the sidewalk. The chalk written names, the messages, and the artwork stretched from one end of Kamiak High School all the way to Chennault Beach Blvd. Our City of Mukilteo Police talked with those who were gathering at the beginning of the event and were cooperative in offering their support.

Below is a collage put together of some of the works. It's mostly all washed away now, but take time to learn about these individuals below, in honor of Heidie Sharpe's efforts.

Do you know someone who deserves to be the Mukiltean of the Day? Nominate them.
