taken from Dr. King's work on nonviolence

Thank You!

We would like to express our appreciation to everyone who helped make this year’s Placer MLK a success, attendees, volunteers and the Placer County community!

Thank you for your support, attendance and contributions to a record-breaking 6th annual event.  Approximately 400 local families and residents attended this year and several news outlets promoted the program. 

Hopefully the “beloved community” message of hope - coupled with achievable and unwavering goals for advocacy within our community, our leaders and Placer area students - is attainable together. 

With many thanks,
