Woonsocket Martin Luther King Community Committee 2022 Weekend Celebration


Woonsocket – The Woonsocket MLK Community Committee celebrates 20 years of service to the community.


The theme of the event this year is “Amplifying Voices for Racial Solidarity and Equity.” The theme is intended to inspire the community during a difficult time and to serve as a reminder of both individual and collective responsibility to fight injustices and support one another. In  King’s words, “You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.”
