Welcome to MLK2019. The Northern California Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Foundation (NorcalMLK) is excited to host San Francisco's free, annual Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday observance.

The theme for MLK2019 is We Are In This Together. Over the past year, we have experienced widening disparities and a continued assault on our fundamental democratic institutions from within and from without. And, deepening social and economic injustice and exclusion have strained the very fibers of our nation. This is why justice is such a vital principle for achieving a beloved community. For, true justice connotes a determined care and concern for the welfare of others, and it demands a searching honesty with our past and our present, so that we can achieve a more just future.

So, as we embark on 2019, let us all confront injustice and exclusion with a rigid determination that marks true justice and a beloved community. Because, we are in this together.
