MLK Virtual Celebration
Sunday, January 17 - Thursday, January 21
A MLK Virtual Celebration!
A call to action: Together, we invite our entire community — those who live, work, study, and participate in the life of Westport, Fairfield County, and adjacent counties — to join us as we begin the work needed in 2021 to meet King’s call to action, as urgent now as it was in 1968. For members of a community such as Westport, that begins with our challenge to understand our place of comfort and the work we each, as individuals, need to do to transform ourselves and our society into a more equitable and just one.
This year the Westport Playhouse and our community partners are moving the celebration online and, with three different events, expanding opportunities to be engaged and meet the moment. All events are free and open to the public, but you must reserve your place:
The Westport Playhouse is once again partnering with the Westport Library, TEAM Westport, the Westport/Weston Interfaith Council, and the Westport/Weston Interfaith Clergy.
