You’re invited to join us in honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through an interfaith community breakfast that includes dynamic speakers, inspirational music and a delicious hot breakfast served at 7 a.m.
This is the 8th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Breakfast for the Northeast Suburbs. This year’s theme is “The Time Is Always Right To Do What Is Right.” The breakfast is sponsored by White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church in partnership with Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul and Twin Cities Public Television.
Our guest speaker this year is Jason Sole. He has been a criminal justice educator at Metropolitan State University for over seven years and at Hamline University for more than a year. He is a national keynote speaker and trainer. Alongside his career, he is the president of the Minneapolis NAACP and is changing key policies that create disparate outcomes for people of color. In addition, Sole was a 2013 Bush Fellow who focused on reducing the recidivism rate among juveniles throughout the state of Minnesota. He is currently traveling the country discussing his memoir, From Prison to Ph.D.: A Memoir of Hope, Resilience, and Second Chances.
Attendees also will watch a big screen broadcast of keynote speaker Myrlie Evers-Williams, author, civil rights activist and wife of murdered civil rights activist Medgar Evers, speaking from downtown Minneapolis at the 27th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Breakfast, sponsored by UNCF and the General Mills Foundation.
Everyone is welcome. Tickets are $5 for the hot breakfast at 7 a.m. Children 12 and under are free but need a ticket reservation for breakfast. The program, which starts at 7:30 a.m., is free and open to the public.
