Councilmember Bruce Harrell announces major step
to establish a Bruce Lee Action Museum
Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights and Technology Committee, is excited to announce a major step in establishing a Bruce Lee Action Museum here in Seattle. For over a year, Bruce has worked with Shannon Lee, daughter of famed martial artist Bruce Lee, on making this project a reality to benefit Seattle and those who visit our region.
"As a policy leader, building an urban infrastructure where youth of all backgrounds can embrace discipline, hard work, self-esteem, and a love of life, is important," said Councilmember Harrell. "Seattle must maintain and establish creative institutions that perpetuate these values."
Thousands will be in attendance to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year and support the Bruce Lee Action Museum. The Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation is putting on this event and supports the Bruce Lee Action Museum. All proceeds from the event will go to the purchase of property to establish the Bruce Lee Action Museum in Seattle.
