2015 Martin Luther King Holiday Events announced
The 2015 Holiday Celebration in Oklahoma City — the city’s 32nd — will take place on Monday, January 19. The Oklahoma City Martin Luther King Holiday Coalition is proud that this event has been and remains one that is inclusive of all races, creeds, nationalities and religions, and a great pride to our city.
The 2015 theme is “Honor, Celebrate, and Work.”
Our signature event, the parade, will begin at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral, located at 127 N.W. 7th, Oklahoma City. Continue reading →
You’ve heard the stories: Rodney King in 1991, Trayvon Martin in early 2012, Eric Garner just last July, and Luis Rodriguez here in Moore, Oklahoma, less than a year ago.
In light of these recent events, much discussion has taken place about interactions with law enforcement.
In a similar situation, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
Join us on Saturday, January 17, at 3:00 P.M., when District Judge Aletia Timmons and State Trooper Paul Timmons will discuss these recent events and how citizens should respond when encountering law enforcement.
This is a community event sponsored by the TLC (Touching Ladies for Christ), the Women’s Ministry of True Vine Ministries, Inc.
