MLK Memorial Service and March

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Westfield will hold its 31st Annual Interfaith Commemoration Service. This service will be hosted by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, located at 414 East Broad St. in Westfield, where Rev. Dr. Duncan Johnston is pastor. The theme for the 2018 program year is Bridging the Divide: Race in America.

The Dr. King Association sponsors an annual essay contest in the local elementary and intermediate schools whose students will respond to the challenge of this theme; and contest winners will be recognized at this service. The commemoration program will include participants from local churches, mosques and synagogues as well as other civic organizations.

The service will start at 1 pm, and will be preceded by a police escorted march departing the Dr. King monument on the circle (south-side) at 12:30 pm. The public is invited to participate in both the march and the service.

The keynote speaker for this event will be Union County Freeholder Linda Carter, a lifelong resident of Plainfield, NJ. Now in her third term, she was the first African-American woman to serve as Chairman of the UC Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The Dr. MLK Association has been a part of the Westfield community for thirty years. The purpose of the association is to inspire and encourage our local communities to seek and adopt the high ideals espoused by Dr. King – especially those ideals that promote respect, fairness and justice for all men.
