Martin Luther King Jr. Day Events
With public health measures in place preventing large public gatherings in celebration of MLK Day, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Colorado Holiday Commission proudly announces an all-virtual celebration to honor the life and legacy of Civil Rights icon Dr. King, on Monday, January 18. Under this year's theme of "Good Trouble" expect a well-produced video presentation of the traditional invocation, speeches, and participation from community members and civil rights luminaries.

Even without the annual MLK Day Marade, the goal is for Denver to continue leading the nation in celebration of this important federal holiday. The MLK Holiday Commission is asking people to find service projects within their own communities, and share videos on the day's work. They are also seeking donations to help care for the unhoused and needy, including food, toiletries, diapers, cell phones, and most vitally socks, boots, gloves, jackets, and other winter gear.

To find donation locations and for more information please go to https://www.denver.org/things-to-do/fall-winter/denver-mlk-day/

In Boulder County, the community has created an outstanding event that will feature youth from the Boulder Valley School District and the St. Vrain Valley School District, Colorado Heritage Community Choir, Director, Madelyn Strong Woodley, and Kerrie Joy, noted Civil Rights Historian and Photographer Dr. Ernest Withers, special presentations, and much, much more. The theme for our MLK Day 2021 celebration is "Why We Can't Wait" and will take place on Monday, January 18 at 10:00 a.m.
