This year’s celebration is an invitation and a call to action to reflect on and take inspiration from the teachings of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The celebration seeks to highlight the ways in which our community members’ daily actions can make a positive change in the lives of others. Featuring voices and performances from across the community, the event will show how we all can “take action” and meet the challenge presented by Dr. King’s Living the Dream.
From the teachings of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we have learned that even small actions lead to big changes. As we focus on creating a more equitable community, standing up for civil rights, and fighting against institutional racism, it is important that we not only “take action” but motivate others to do so as well.
During the event, community members will share what their call to action is, and this year’s Living the Dream Award winnerswill be announced. The event will also feature performances by Donna Miceli Dance and the Free Soil Arts Collective as well as community member readings and a youth art exhibit.
