Marching Toward The Beloved Community


Marching Toward the Beloved Community: For Justice, Peace and the Elimination of Poverty

On April 4th, 2018, on the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., we’re calling on all people of faith in the common good to gather, march and re-dedicate themselves to the unfinished work of the original Civil Rights Movement and Poor People’s Campaign. 

Let us remember that the movement isn’t over, and there is still so much to be done in order to make King’s dream of a true Beloved Community possible.

5:00 pm — Gather at the Japanese American Historical Plaza (west side waterfront at Davis Street)
5:30 pm — March across the Steel Bridge (via the pedestrian path) to the MLK Statue at MLK Blvd. & NE Holladay St.
6:30 pm — Rally at the MLK Statue at MLK Blvd. & NE Holladay St.

This event is organized & supported by: Albina Ministerial Alliance, The Beloved Community of Oregon, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, and The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
