Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration and Community Event

On Monday, January 15th at 5:30 there will be a celebration in honor of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main St. in Brattleboro. The service will include representatives of many faith traditions, readings from Dr. King, an update from state representative Becca Balint regarding initiatives being taken around the state and in the legislature. Well-known Blues guitarist Scott Ainslie is the featured musician and Andy Davis will lead a community choir. The celebration will end with an encouragement by Steffen Gillom of the local NAACP and the lighting of candles by everyone in attendance. Singers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come to the church by 4:20 to rehearse songs for the service.

This event is sponsored by Brattleboro Area Interfaith Leadership and is a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages, faiths, races and ethnicities to come together to remember the work of Dr. King, to celebrate all that unites us and to learn about local community organizations working against racism. Admission is free, but a good will donation will be taken with proceeds shared between the Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity and the Root Social Justice Center.

A community gathering to include food will follow the celebration on the lower level of the church. ROOT Social Justice Center, Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity, VT Poor People’s Campaign, Youth for Change, NAACP, People of Color Caucus, Lost River Racial Justice Group and other local group working for racial justice will all offer information and make short presentations on how people can be involved locally to work against racism.
