About the MLK Celebration
While the state of Utah lagged for decades in officially acknowledging Martin Luther King Jr. Day, dedicated Westminster campus community members mobilized, strategized, and at times organized with other universities to acknowledge and celebrate Dr. King’s work and commitment to social justice.
In recent years, Westminster’s activities have grown to include a rally and march in the Sugar House neighborhood, a Day of Service, a keynote address, and a luncheon to recognize those among us who are actualizing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their circles of influence. The MLK Celebration advances the talk and action toward building healthy, respectful, and brave living and learning communities for all.
Westminster honors Dr. King’s life and legacy as a leading activist to gain equal civil and human rights for African Americans and all who suffered social, economic, educational, and legal injustice.
