2020 - 29th Annual Dr. Maritn Luther King, Jr. 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, hosted the 29th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Celebration at 12:00 pm on Thursday, January 16, 2020, in the State House North Atrium.

Before the State House event, we hosted 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 took place on Wednesday, January 15th, from 6-7 PM. Fortunately, Indiana weather stuck by our side and allowed us to have a wonderful event with exceptional weather conditions.

Then, on Monday, January 20, 2020, we continued our time-honored tradition of rolling up our sleeves to serve in the legacy of Dr. King during the 9th Annual Dr. King Day of Service. With over 150 volunteers, ICRC, IBE and Starbucks partnered up at the Watkins Park to lend a hand in needed community work. From buidling a coop at Cleo's Bodega to allow fresh eggs for the community, to cleaning up the streets and surrounding park area, the local organizations and neighbors were very appreciative of all of the hard work from our volunteers.
