MLK DREAMWEEK

THE SAN ANTONIO MLK COMMISSION AND DREAMVOICE TEAM ARE COLLABORATING TO PRESENT MLK DREAMWEEK 2014 (Below is a posted joint Mission Statement)

We, the San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. March Commission, in conjunction with Dream Week San Antonio, exist to promote the vision and purpose of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Beloved Community.”
We encourage the City of San Antonio, in partnership with corporate and individual sponsors, to assist in creating platforms for the entire community to constantly improve human relationships so that people will come together as equals, and not judge one another by race, ethnicity, gender, creed or economic status.
We believe in being pro-active through deep collaboration and cross-pollination of groups, which will allow us to encourage human harmony and a better community.
Along with our annual March and Scholarship Programs, we will create educational venues, programs and forums that will encourage healthy discussions, positive interactions and character development.

- Shokare Nakpodia, DreamWeek San Antonio, President
- Bishop David M. Copeland, San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission Chair

“A half-century later, we still stand on the shoulders of Martin Luther King Jr. because the dream endures. It lives and thrives in a place like San Antonio where I can be Mayor and march with a hundred thousand fellow San Antonians in honor of what binds us together, not what makes us different.”

-Julián Castro, Honorable Mayor of City of San Antonio
