Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Event Schedule

As the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday approaches, Supervisor Walker will attend several community events around the Creative Corridor. We invite you to honor Dr. King’s legacy by attending community events, volunteering, or by personally reflecting on the legacy of Dr. King and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement.
