About The Event
The Livonia Equity & Anti-Racism Network (LEARN), in partnership with MOSES Michigan, is proud to invite you to this special celebration of the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is the first year that the City of Livonia will recognize MLK Day as an official holiday, making it an excellent opportunity for our community to join together in celebration.
Our program will feature a plated breakfast and keynote address by David Gerth, executive director of
Metropolitan Congregations United (MCU) for 12 years and member of the Gamaliel Network senior training team.
As we celebrate Dr. King's legacy of inspiration, we will pay homage to women of the Civil Rights movement who lit the fires of freedom then and those who continue service as "sisters in the struggle" today.
This is a family-friendly event. Children between the ages of 4 and 11 can enjoy a FREE children's program with continental breakfast and age-appropriate activities. *Two children per adult paid admission. **Space is limited.
