Join the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race as we gather at this critical moment in our nation to reaffirm Dr. King’s vision of the beloved community. This year’s multi-faith service will be at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church at 767 Prospect St. in Maplewood at 2 p.m. today. Joseph Ford, Selma Freedom Rider and current Maplewood resident, is the featured speaker. The Volunteer Fair, with opportunities for service and donations, follows the observance.
Be part of the “Luminaria Project” as we light our neighborhoods beginning at 5 p.m., as a sign of peace and commitment to Dr. King’s vision of the “beloved community”! Luminaria kits will be available for a $10 donation at the MLK Observance and the Community Coalition on Race office—call 973-761-6116 or click on the flyer for more info.
