Save The Date: 49th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Remembrance and Unity Dinner "We Are One" on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Chicago Hilton and Towers Hotel
Join the ICDHR as we celebrate the 49th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at our "Unity Dinner" (6:00 pm, raffle and general reception; 7:00 pm dinner). The theme of this event is "We Are One," a theme that addresses the divide that now exists throughout our nation.
ICDHR has partnered with the Motorola Solutions Foundation, selected police departments, youth serving agencies and youth in the Chicago metropolitan area in the "Youth and the Law Project."
The primary goal of this project is to teach youth how to interface with police on the streets. Given the divide between minority youth and police throughout the country, this is an important project in the Chicago metropolitian area since thousands of African-American and Hispanic males are approached by police on a weekly basis with negative results.
Find out how you or your organization can participate in this important project by contacting ICDHR Chairman Rev. Clyde H. Brooks at (630) 771-1707 or by email at email@example.com.
