Friday deadline for MLK celebration proposals

Dec. 3, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students and faculty as well as members of the greater Kalamazoo community are encouraged to submit proposals for activities, programs and workshops relevant to this year's local Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.

Event proposals, which may include a request for funding up to $150, are due Monday, Dec. 10. Past activities have included a jazz/poetry slam, film showings and discussions, panel discussions, and a brown bag luncheon speaker series.

The 2008 MLK Celebration theme is "What King Wrought: Stand Up for Justice, Stand Up for Truth."

WMU, along with the City of Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo College and the Northside Ministerial Alliance, is putting on a variety of public events this January to celebrate King's life and work and foster dialog and understanding among area residents.
