2024 MLK Holiday Events
In cooperation with our presenting sponsors,
the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade & Festivities Committee annually organizes and presents innovative, entertaining, signature events that commemorates the life and legacy
of the civil rights icon.
This celebration is the foundation on which the organization seeks to promote the individual value and potential of all people as a means to eliminate poverty, racism, and violence everywhere.
Recognizing society’s formidable 21st century challenges, our advocacy is currently expanding education and community service, especially for youth and families.
To that end, our efforts, rooted in Dr. King’s dream and vision, are predicated on
empowering a new generation of powerful, positive, social change-makers.
2024 Theme: "Transforming the Dream!"
Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech
Unity is up to all of us.
Dr. King's Dream of a world where "unarmed truth and conditional love will have the final word"
is more important than ever in combatting today's highly visible divisiveness and injustice.
We invite you to join us in continuing Dr. King's Legacy
as our community strives for positive social change.
We need Leaders
who tirelessly work to eliminate prejudice and achieve equal rights for all humanity.
We seek Trailblazers who will find new avenues to erradicate oppression.
We appreciate Activists who nonviolently stand up for whatever is good and right.
We want Messengers to share this wonderful dream for peace and harmony.
And, we encourage Dreamers who imaginatively aspire to create a better world.
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because
they have not communicated with each other."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
