Indiana Holiday Celebration

 

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Commission, the State of Indiana, the Indiana Civil Rights Commission, Indiana Black Expo, Inc. and AFSCME, are hosting the 28th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Celebration at 12:00 pm on Thursday, January 10, 2019, in the State House North Atrium. 

Before the State House event, we will be hosting a commemorative Wreath Placing Ceremony at the Indiana War Memorial: Soldiers and Sailors Monument, alongside the Iota Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. This will take place on Wednesday, January 9th, from 6-7 PM.

Then, on Monday, January 21, 2019, we continue our time-honored tradition of rolling up our sleeves to serve in the legacy of Dr. King during the 8th Annual Dr. King Day of Service. Registration begins at 9 am at the Watkins Park Family Center. 

All events are open to the public.
