Rubenstein Law Firm Honors Dr. Martin Luther King Legacy With Parade Participation and Dreamers Scholarship to Promote Non-Violence for Youth in Miami-Dade.
Miami, FL, ---Rubenstein Law firm will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., by participating in the 40th Annual MLK Parade & Festivities located at NW 54th Street and 10th Ave to 32nd Avenue for the second consecutive year in Miami, Florida on January 16, 2017, 11:00 a.m.-6 p.m. This year Rubenstein Law returns as a proud contributing sponsor of the Dreamer Scholastic Scholarship.
"Participating in such a well-respected community event and contributing to the Dreamer scholarship is a terrific way to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King. It’s important for us to be visible in the community on such a deserving day for a great man whose ideals and dreams had such a powerful and positive impact in our communities," said Attorney Robert Rubenstein. "The commitment, hard work, and civic engagement by these students help to embody the spirit of Dr. King’s teachings on empowering individuals and strengthening our local communities and is a great way to show a positive narrative about our young people in Miami-Dade County."
The parade is symbolic of the power of nonviolence, dreams and new beginnings in Miami-Dade County. Last year, nearly one young person a week had been murdered in Miami-Dade. About 35 kids and teens are killed every year, according to a decade of data provided by the medical examiner’s office. The MLK parade has always united communities and we are committed to being visible in the community by providing support and resources for causes that positively affect our youth and the community.
