Last year revealed the ideological and often racial divisions in America, particularly through political discourse on police brutality, immigration and more. Begin 2017 by joining with the community to celebrate and reaffirm Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of civil rights activism, unity and nonviolent resistance. The annual MLK Day Unity March through downtown follows a rally at the Convention Center, also the site of the day’s Community Resource Fair. Sticking to local tradition, Rev. Percy “Happy” Watkins delivers Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech at two different locations: Holy Family Hospital at noon, and Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center at 3 pm. MLK Day is also traditionally a day of service to the community, said to be “a day on, not a day off,” so look for volunteer opportunities at volunteerspokane.org.

Mon, Jan. 16, at 10 am • Free • Downtown Spokane and the Spokane Convention Center • 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. • mlkspokane.org
