The Eternal Dream of Dr. King:  A MLK Celebration

“As we celebrate his enduring legacy, let us recommit ourselves to being defenders of our communities, voices for the voiceless – a resistance that cannot be moved.”  Please join Communities Building Community for a MLK Celebration “The Eternal Dream of Dr. King” on Sunday, January 14, 2018 from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm at the First African Methodist Episcopal Church (FAME) located at 2446 Revere St. in N. Las Vegas.

The celebration will consist of special guest speakers, poetry, dance and performances by members of The Interfaith Council Peace Choir and the FAME Choir as we look into the past, present and future of civil rights in Las Vegas.  Guest speakers include Rico Ocampo, Outreach Coordinator at Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth and Program Director for Camp Anytown Youth Leadership and Punam Mathur, Executive Director of the Elaine P. Wynn & Family Foundation, a private foundation that exists to advance fundamental change, primarily related to equity, civil rights and conservation.

“Every year our nation pauses to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and recommit ourselves to realizing his dream of equality and justice for all.

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired a nation to rise up against discrimination, injustice, poverty and war. He believed that the most pressing challenges we face could be resolved through peaceful non-violent action. Dr. King also encouraged this country and the world to be relentless in defense of marginalized communities of our society.
