The March is Far from Over

2022

The theme for this year’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration is “The March is Far from Over” and we are excited to continue this march together as we gather to march and celebrate together.  As a member of our community, we ask you to reflect on what you can do as we march towards progress, equity, and justice.
