Get your walking shoes ready for several worthy causes happening nearly back-to-back this weekend. On the heels of Spokane’s Indigenous Peoples March (Jan. 18) and Women+s March (Jan. 19) is the annual Martin Luther King Jr., Day rally and resource fair in downtown Spokane (Jan. 21) to commemorate the icon of social justice and to rally our community to uphold the values he championed. For this year’s MLK weekend events, Spokane’s Martin Luther King Jr. Family Outreach Center is hosting a Day of Service on Jan. 19 (8 am-noon), which involves preparing hygiene kits and a canned food drive. Monday brings the rally through downtown starting at 10 am, followed by a resource fair at the convention center from 11:30 am to 2 pm. Find all the details on the MLK Center’s Facebook page.
Sat, Jan. 19 through Mon, Jan. 21; times and locations vary • Free • Spokane Convention Center (rally and resource fair) • 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. • facebook.com/mlkspokane
