Annual march honors MLK Jr.

Tuesday, January 7, 2020 by Tai Moses

The annual Community March, organized by the Austin Area Heritage Council, honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and celebrates diversity in Austin. The march begins 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, at the MLK statue at the University of Texas campus, and continues to Huston-Tillotson University. Afterward, marchers and community members celebrate from 11:15 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at a festival featuring live music, food, kids’ activities, local artists and vendors from around the community. Individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations are all welcome to march. This year marchers are asked to help support the Central Texas Food Bank with a donation of canned or nonperishable food. Find the march route, vendor applications and information about the food drive and volunteer opportunities here.
