The planning committee is inviting residents of Manitowoc County and beyond that practice Dr. King’s legacy of peace and social and economic justice and want to learn more. The January 18 program will also feature opportunities for participants to commit to various community service opportunities.

Dr. King was a staunch believer in community service, a supporter of working people and unions, helped develop and support numerous educational opportunities for children and others, raised critical questions about priorities including the costs of war versus social needs and put forth demands such as: jobs or incomes. These contributions of Dr. King will be featured during the January 18 program and leading up to the event on the MLK Day Manitowoc Facebook page.
