About the Event

On December 12, 2017, the Lee Family lost our beloved Edwin M. Lee, and the City of San Francisco lost its beloved mayor, unexpectedly and far too soon.

The Lee Family warmly invites you to join a special Seattle screening of Mayor Ed Lee, a documentary film which chronicles and preserves the memory of Ed Lee for future generations. Discover the life and character of this seemingly ordinary man, the son of working-class immigrants who grew up in Seattle's public housing, eventually serving as a San Francisco Chinatown lawyer, champion of civil rights and equal opportunity, and the first Asian American mayor of a major U.S. city.   


2 - 3pm        Reception: Meet and Greet with Lee Family Members and Film Producer Rick Quan

                     Entertainment provided by Deems Tsutakawa Band

3 - 4pm        Film screening: Mayor Ed Lee 

4 - 4:30pm   Q&A Session: Producer Rick Quan and KOMO TV Reporter Ryan Yamamoto

**Film premiere tickets are limited in quantity. Please note: this special event is expected to sell out.**

The Lee Family is profoundly appreciative for all of the encouragement, support and interest expressed in presenting and attending this event. A portion of the net proceeds will benefit the Edwin M. Lee Community Leadership Award scholarships facilitated through the Franklin High School Alumni Association and other projects furthering the legacy of Ed Lee.
