Reminder: MLK Celebration Week "Day On, not Off"- Rescheduled Times

Contributed by Geselle Dominguez on 01/18/19 

View printable version

 Join us throughout a full day of Keynote events and workshops as the community reflects on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

 This year's theme, "Every Step Toward the Goal of Justice" is taken from a larger quote in Dr. King's book, Stride Toward Freedom. In this book, Dr. King writes,

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Even a superficial look at history reveals that no social advance rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. Every step towards the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. Without persistent effort, time itself becomes an ally of the insurgent and primitive forces of irrational emotionalism and social destruction. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.  

***The following events have been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 22nd:
