LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the King Day holiday, AHF and its affinity group The Black Leadership AIDS Crisis Coalition (BLACC) will host national multi-city activations from January 14-16th to commemorate the civil rights leader’s advocacy efforts and changemaking leadership. The activations will include marching contingents in various parades and pop-up events honoring Dr. King for the change agent he became for the civil rights movement and ultimately the sacrifices he made for the betterment of Black people living in America. January 15th, 2023 marks what would have been Dr. King’s 94thbirthday.
“We must come to see that at the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience”Dr. King
In addition, AIDS Healthcare Foundation will be promoting its wildly popular “Stand Against Hate” campaign at all these events celebrating Dr. King. This campaign was first created in 2017 in response to the series of hateful events that took place in Charlottesville, VA. The phrase “Stand Against Hate” has allowed a myriad of people to connect with a universal message that acts of hatred and violence continue to be a detriment to our society. Like Dr. King once said “We must come to see that at the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience,” – delivered on March 25, 1965, in Montgomery, AL.
