MARCH FOR THE DREAM: Justice-Equality-Love

 Welcome to the NAACP Santa Cruz County Branch and the Santa Cruz Police Department's 2019 MLK March For the Dream Justice. Equality. Love. 

Honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. means bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to build authentic bonds of human understanding and value. The MLK March in Santa Cruz is more than a march. It is an opportunity to put Dr. King’s words and ideals into practice by inviting others from different ethnicities, religions or backgrounds to walk together and listen to one another.

The community is invited to join the march in honor of Dr. King. After the march, we will convene with speeches and family-friendly activities.
