WEEKEND WEATHER UPDATE

“Due to the extended inclement weather forecast, the Saturday night program and alternate Sunday night cannot go forward. The outdoor format planned for Covid safety had this inherent risk. Committee for King regrets the circumstance and invites you to tune in to the pre-recorded “Living the Legacy” program on our website at 6 p.m. on Saturday night. The program will remain on our website for public viewing. Thank you for your understanding and support.”

"There will be no in-person program on Sunday afternoon at the Civic Auditorium but rather can be viewed virtually by going to Committee for King Facebook page at 2:30 or streamed live on this site."

As a local organization, we continue Dr. King's legacy for all members of our community, regardless of age, race, faith, socioeconomic background, etc., as well as through evolving initiatives lead by our NextGen group of volunteers. We look forward to working together as we move toward the dream of love, compassion, respect, and harmony for all people.
