Monday, January 16 is our federal holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., with celebrations and service opportunities around West Contra Costa County.
Dr. King's tireless struggle for civil rights and economic justice changed the world for the better. Unfortunately, we still have lots of work to do in order to achieve true equality and justice in our country.
We must continue to advance the work of Dr. King to reject intolerance, violence, hate and injustice. I'm deeply committed to working with our community in the spirit of Dr. King.
Let's start with participating in one of these inspiring MLK Day events:
NEW TO THE LIST:
The Watershed Project will host the Bay Trail Clean Up at Stege Marsh from
