Past Events

MLK Bridges attended  the historic commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the death of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 3rd and 4th 2018.

There are three opportunities to engage and in particular I’d like to invite you to the evening of April 3rd and the morning of the 4th.

For those of you who are able to attend the prayer service (in the Orthodox style), please gather at 5:15 at St. Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church (2815 36 th Street NW, Washington, DC 20007) parking will be available.

We are gathering earlier to make sure we get a spot for the prayer service as a group. If you come a bit later you can text one of the organizers to find out where we are.

For those who are able to attend later in the evening, we’ll gather at 7:30pm to attend the 8pm Then and Now, an Ecumenical Gathering to End Racism. This will also be at St. Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church (2815 36 th Street NW, Washington, DC 20007). I might locate nearby street parking and plan to arrive by 7:10pm just to find parking and orient yourself to the church.

Please let me know if you are able to come the evening of Tuesday April 3rd 2018.

Some Background 

As we mark 50 years since the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, we will commit to do our part to eradicate the entrenched racism that grips the United States and paralyzes our ability to see every human being as equal.

We challenge ourselves and our communities to join in truth-telling, leading to actions that right the wrongs, and, with God’s grace, bring healing and wholeness to all people, and unity to the nation.
