The Annual Community March celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in Austin. The MLK Community March kicks off on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020 at 9 a.m. with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus. Attendees will then march 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. The MLK Community Festival kicks off at 11:15 a.m. and will last until 3:30 p.m. It will include a variety of vendors and local musical artists.
This year, organizers are asking marchers to help by donating canned goods or non-perishable food items, which will be donated to the Central Texas Food Bank. 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.
