Over 75 people of different ages, races and backgrounds joined 804 Coaches for Change Monday, Jan. 18 to celebrate, discuss and expound upon the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The attendees spent an hour talking about famous MLK quotes and what they meant to them, what strides have been made since his untimely death, what the next MLK looks like and what we can do together to continue to carry on his dream of unity.
We thank all of the organizations and schools that were represented, and look forward to continuing these helpful conversations for our community. See you in February!
