Pikes Peak Region Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day All People's Breakfast

At Colorado College Robson Arena, January 16, 2023
It Starts With Me: Creating a Beloved Community Mindset to Transform Unjust Systems

The Annual Pikes Peak Region Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. commemoration is an opportunity to strengthen our community by honoring Dr. King’s legacy of non-violence, service, equity, justice, peace, respect, and inclusion. Each year, on the federally designated holiday, we gather to recommit ourselves to this mission and ignite attendees' passion for serving the region throughout the year.

Please join us as we gather in person again for the first time in three years. We will begin our day with a no cost community breakfast, followed by our keynote presentation, Food For Thought Discussion and a Unity March to Acacia Park. We are pleased to feature Dr. Mike Edmonds as our keynote speaker this year.

Dr. Edmonds currently serves as the senior vice president at Colorado College, where he has been since 1991. He served as acting co-president for the 2020-21 academic year, making him the first African American person to lead CC. Edmonds has been a dedicated change agent in the Colorado Springs Community and served on a number of boards, including the Rocky Mountain division of the American Cancer Society, Fire Foundation of Colorado Springs, Pikes PEAK Children’s Museum, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and UCHealth.

 

The All People's Breakfast is made possible by generous support from our sponsors
