MLK Jr. Inaugural Unity Ball

January 19 @ 7:00 pm - January 20 @ 12:00 am

A Co-op Sponsored Event

Location: The Majestic, 1027 N Forest Street in Bellingham

We invite you to be a part the First Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Ball. Taken from a message that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave at Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 3, 1968, the theme of this year’s ball is Celebrate Yourself Like Never Before. During this final public appearance before his tragic assassination the next day, Dr. King encouraged folks to: Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, 'Here is an opportunity to celebrate like never before–my own power and my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.’
We are coming together to celebrate in honor of him and organizations and individuals in the Bellingham community who keep the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dream alive ... the dream that this country could attain only by working together and acknowledging our shared history: ideals of equity, freedom, and self-determination.
A portion of the net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the International Inclusive Empowerment Society, a local nonprofit that empowers vulnerable immigrants and refugees with multiple barriers to successfully integrate into an inclusive American society through education, advocacy, and equity.
