Join members of our community from the Marcus Garvey Cultural Center, the University of Northern Colorado, the City of Greeley, and Aims Community College as we honor the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and reflect on our collective responsibility to work towards a more equitable society.

This year’s theme is “Beyond the Dream: Where Do We Go From Here?” and we are celebrating the 25th year of the celebration. The celebration includes the annual unity march, celebration of Dr. King’s life and legacy, reception, and a week of events hosted by partners across our community.

Join Us on Monday, January 20, 2020

This year’s march begins at 9:15 AM at UNC’s University Center, continues down 10th Avenue, and finishes at the City of Greeley’s Union Colony Civic Center. This is a 30-45 minute walk depending on pace. Mark yourself “Attending”, get updates, and share the event with your friends through our Facebook Event.
