Annual Martin Luther King Day Commemoration and Remembrance • Monday, January 18, 2010 • 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM • Central Sq., Cambridge

Please join the Cambridge Peace Commission as we publicly remember Dr. Martin Luther King on the streets of Cambridge and then celebrate his life and work at St. Peter's Episcopal Church:
* 11:30 AM to 12:15 PM: Community Remembrance of Dr. King • gather in front of Cambridge City Hall • 795 Massachusetts Ave. 
* 12:30 to 1:30 PM: Celebration of Dr. King's Life and Work for Peace, Justice, and Transformation • inside St. Peter's Episcopal Church • 838 Massachusetts Ave.

In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King described the most serious threat to American society. In his words, "We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." More than 40 years later, the United States still faces these three existential challenges to our values as a nation.

We will stand up publicly to honor and remember Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy of peace and justice, and then gather at St. Peter's to hear the words of Dr. King calling for peace, justice and transformation, along with brief remarks by Winston Cox of the Social Justice Academy and music by Veronique-Anne Epiter. In this time of war and economic upheaval, add your presence in support of peace and justice in the world -- and right here in Cambridge.

Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
