Homeless serving hub hosts annual MLK walk on Saturday
Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King’s work to achieve human rights and economic justice for all, the homeless serving hub Sisters of the Road will host their 20th annual Martin Luther King Day “March for the Dream” on Saturday, Jan.19.
The VOZ Workers’ Rights Education Project, along with other community leaders, will join this year’s celebration kicking off with a rally at 10 a.m. at the VOZ Worker Center on Northeast Martin Luther King Boulevard and Everett Street.
Community members will be welcomed and warmed with coffee, hot cocoa and pastries.
The march begins at 11 a.m. and will continue over the Burnside Bridge, making a downtown stop at the Right 2 Dream Too rest area to learn about this group’s work for “the right to rest, the right to sleep, and the right 2 dream too,” before ending at Sisters Of The Road.
The final reception from noon to 2 p.m. at Sisters of the Road’s Cafe will feature musician and housing activist Mic Crenshaw as keynote speaker.
Live music, speeches by community leaders, and delicious homemade soup and snacks as well as coffee, tea, and cocoa are also all on tap.
