LCSC to help with MLK/Idaho Human Rights Day Activities

LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College will help with community volunteer projects to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. and Idaho Human Rights Day on Monday, Jan. 16.

Those interested in joining LCSC faculty, staff, and students in volunteering for a variety of service projects can sign up on Jan. 16 at the YWCA, located at 300 Main Street in downtown Lewiston. Registration begins at 2 p.m., with volunteer projects running from 2:30-4:30 p.m.

The YWCA will host an informal reception with refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages at 5 p.m., with a musical performance by the band Yellow Dog Flats starting at 5:30 p.m.

A candlelight walk will follow at 6 p.m. from the YWCA to the LCSC Center for Arts and History, located nearby at 415 Main Street. At the Center, the LC Choir will perform until 6:30 p.m. At that time, the Living Voices Theater Company will stage a production of “Our Revolution,” a one-person play which dramatizes the role of African Americans in the American Revolution. Lewiston City Council member Jesse Maldonado will serve as emcee.

The Martin Luther King Jr. and Idaho Human Rights Day Planning Committee, a group composed of LCSC personnel and community members, helped coordinate the event. For more information on the event or the group, contact Ryan Paulus, LCSC AmeriCorps VISTA, at 208-792-2740 or [email protected].

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council, a State-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
