MLK March, Community Festival and Food Drive

January 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Annual Community March celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in our city. The MLK Community March kicks off on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 9 a.m.with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus.

We will then march to the south steps of the State Capitol for a short program and marchers will continue on to the historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned. All businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals are invited to march and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy.

MLK COMMUNITY FESTIVAL

The MLK Community Festival kicks off as soon the marchers arrive on location and will last until 3 p.m.; it will include all types of vendors and local musical artists to make this year’s celebration the best ever! A vendor application can be downloaded for those interested in purchasing booth space. For questions and information, please contact Carol Wright by email or by telephone at (512) 657-3064.

SUPPORT THE CENTRAL TEXAS FOOD BANK

This year, we are asking marchers to help by donating can goods or non-perishable food items, which will be donated to the Central Texas Food Bank. Help to give to those in need by helping the Capital Area Food Bank fill their shelves with non-perishable food items. “True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Donation receptacles will be available at The University of Texas and the Capitol, while the march is in those locations. Receptacles will also be available at the festival at Huston-Tillotson University.

AMB Events

Being a mom can be a lonely experience if you allow it to be. We know all too well what it feels like when you are juggling feedings and life and then somehow you wake up one day and realize that your social calendar has taken a backseat. We would love it if you would take the time to join us for some various playdates and mom’s night out events throughout the year. Since everyone has different schedules and needs we will be doing our best to vary the dates, times, locations, and age ranges of the activities we plan.

Make sure you follow us on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and Twitter to stay abreast of the latest dates and events. All event registration is first come, first served and moms must be registered in advance.
