Martin Luther King Day 2015


The crowd marched through the sunny streets of downtown Spokane, banners and signs in hand. Grant Elementary students drummed as other bands marched and played as the crowd made the loop back to the Spokane Convention Center.

“Why do we march? Because enough is enough. We march because injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
-Freda Gandy, Executive Director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Family Outreach Center and event planner

“[I]t was a beautiful event. There was a lot of diversity. It was a powerful moment for Spokane.”
