The organizing committee for the 2019 Whatcom Human Rights Task Force Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Saturday Conference is currently soliciting workshop proposals.

The theme of this year’s conference, Remaining Awake Together: Nurturing a Revolution of Values, draws on the principles Dr. King delineated in his speech, “Beyond Viet Nam, A Time to Break Silence” at Harlem’s Riverside Church on April 4th, 1967, exactly one year before he was assassinated.  His message remains as urgent today as it did over 50 years ago.

Now in its twenty-first year, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Saturday Conference offers a rare opportunity for people of all ages and walks of life to share our stories, lift our voices to call out injustice, and take actions that will help make Dr. King’s ideals reality.

The Conference will take place on Saturday, January 19th, 2019 at Whatcom Community College Syre Student Center.  It will feature a participatory “People’s Keynote” designed to encourage conversation and build bridges, along with morning and afternoon workshop sessions.  If you are interested in participating in the 2019 Conference, please submit a proposal by October 24th.  Proposals submitted after this date will be considered if space is available.

An online submission form is available at submit-a-workshop-proposal/.

A pdf version of the form is also available at the above site that can be filled out and emailed to
