2013 marks the Silver Anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace and Unity Parade Celebration in the city of Long Beach and Councilman Dee Andrews encourages individuals of all ages to participate by volunteering. Those interested in getting involved are invited to attend a planning meeting at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 2, at Ernest S. McBride Park, 1550 Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave.
“Being an activist for equal rights and peace, this is a special event for me. Being a believer in the human spirit, it is an event to unite all races and that is my intention for this annual event,” said Councilman Andrews.
“I am calling out to all my brothers and sisters, be it African American, Asian, Hispanics, or Caucasian. The human spirit has no color and this is the perfect venue to demonstrate that we are beyond the color boundaries.”
The Peace & Unity Parade Celebration will take place on Saturday, January 19, 2013. Community volunteers are needed for the annual parade and celebration. There are all types of fun activities that you can donate your time towards such as; Peace March, park celebration assistants, and parade monitors. Community service hours are offered to all volunteers and students are welcomed. Volunteers must 16 years old or older to participate.
