A Community Mirroring the Dream: A Celebration of the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Past Event

Virtual Community Celebration and Virtual March

Featuring performances, music, art, and words from Kitsap County social justice organizations, this virtual event is a true celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Following the community celebration, we will be encouraging all attendees to join our virtual march. We encourage you to take to the streets, forest pathways, living rooms, and parking lots to show your support of contemporary struggles for social justice. Watch via zoom or walk in solidarity with community members from around the region and speak your truths to power!
