Action Tukwila took shape in 2016. Its seed was an informal group of citizens who wanted to explore ideas for projects that would build a vibrant community and help people who live in Tukwila thrive.

The group's first project was a record-breaking community gathering: Come Sit at Our Table - The World's Largest Potluck. For one glorious August afternoon, the northbound lanes of Tukwila International Boulevard closed to traffic. More than 1,500 people came together to enjoy food, dance, music, and soccer with their neighbors.

Now a 501(c)(3), Action Tukwila continues to evolve and launch new projects.
