25th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Human Rights Conference

Please join us for the 25th Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Rights Conference this coming January. Since its inception in 1999, thousands of community members have come together to renew their commitment to the ideals of peace, justice, and collective liberation that Dr. King held so dear. Dr. King was not alone in his fight for freedom, working with many other great leaders and community members, just as we must work together to build the beloved community he dreamed of. For the past 25 years, the Dr. King Conference has curated spaces for Whatcom County to learn, grow, and connect together to share our visions for dismantling white supremacy to create a just and equitable world where everyone thrives.

2023 Conference Schedule:

Poetry Night: Jan. 12th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Opening Ceremony & Keynote: Jan. 13th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

A day of workshops & community spaces hosted on Zoom: Jan. 14th, 9:00am – 4:00pm
