Welcome to the March for the Dream where honoring Martin Luther King Jr. means inviting someone from another race, religion or cultural background to walk with you.
The Extra Mile is the ceremonial start of the march for leaders who want to walk, talk and dramatize their commitment to equity, justice and fairness. Use the Invitation Tree to invite your staff or constituent to walk with you on the Extra Mile. Knowing about the past allows us to understand the future. The Extra Mile is a look back to our civil rights past with civil rights era sing-a-longs, marching arm-in-arm and the music.
As the Extra Mile honors the past, the official start of the March is all about impacting the future. Sacramento’s best radio jocks will be on stage to hype-up the crowds and to kick things off with music, speeches, entertainment and a few surprises. If you want to be front and center, you will definitely want to get here as early as possible.
The Diversity Expo showcases what people are doing to make a positive impact in our community and world. The Expo helps to bring the message home that hope lives. MLK365 is pulling-out all stops — music, spoken-word, arts and crafts, colleges, employers, educators, health professionals and much more!
You can purchase a shirt, check-out a robotics demonstration, or visit our “Ask a Teacher” area and ask a K-12 teacher or counselor a question about your student.
