2021 Martin Luther King, Jr. Observance – This Little Sign of Mine
Updated: Jan 4
Every year, the CCHRC comes together to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a form of celebration. In 2021, we plan to continue this tradition and we are excited to do so during a time when we recognize that our mission and the mission that Dr. King stood for is needed now more than ever. In the spirit of respecting the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing, we are proud to offer everyone an opportunity to join in on this celebration from the comfort and safety of your very own home!
The Concord Carlisle Human Rights Council in collaboration with COAR (Communities Organizing Against Racism, Concord-Carlisle-Boston) invites community members to create and display signs in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in what we are calling “This Little Sign of Mine: Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”. We encourage you to get creative and consider the following prompts when creating your sign:
o How does Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy inspire you?
o What is your dream for our community?
Once you’ve created your sign, feel free to display them in your windows at home in a front-facing window or in a front yard during MLK Jr. weekend (1/16-1/18) so that as a community, we can all stand in solidarity together in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr by letting our signs shine. In addition, we would love to offer a space for you to share photos of your work for a chance to be displayed on our Facebook page. Simply take a photo of your beautiful artwork and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3 Simple Steps for How to Participate:
-Make a poster (Get creative! Use what you have already in your home i.e. markers, magazines, old newspapers, etc.)
-Display in a front-facing window or in a front yard
-Take a photo and email it to email@example.com by Sunday, January 17th so that they can be displayed on MLK Jr. Day!
