Councilwoman Judith Green (D) 1 will join thousands of others when the 3rd Annual Martin Luther King Memorial Walk gets underway on Saturday, April 5th.
The theme of the walk “Supporting Community Pride” will mark 40 years since the passing of Dr, King in Memphis.
“Dr. King's life was one promoting peace, love, and non-violence. He lived his life daily believing that this world could achieve a community full of love, peace and prosperity for all,” says Green. “I can think of no better way to convey that message than joining others in support his vision and dream.”
The walk will begin at the Chickasaw Park Pavilion in District 1, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Walkers are encouraged to bring a dish for an old fashion potluck lunch after the walk. Councilwoman Green will contribute to the potluck.
“This is a good way for families and neighbors to come out and spend some time together talking about what we can do to show pride in our community and at the same time remind ourselves of what Dr. King saw as this country’s potential for justice and equality for all.
The MLK Memorial Walk is sponsored by The Service for Peace organization. For more information, please call Mr. Keith Bertrand at 714-1075 and The Reverend Peter Hayes at 290-3611. Go to: http://www.serviceforpeace.org/chapters.php?id=5 to learn more.
