Proposals sought for 2003 MLK celebration

Nov. 18, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University community is invited to participate in the 2003 celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Committee is organizing events that will take place the week of Jan 21-25, 2003. In addition to a communitywide celebration being planned with the Northside Ministerial Alliance, the week will include programs and workshops relevant to the 2003 theme, "Moving the Dream into the Community: Civil Rights to Social Justice."

Committee members are seeking proposals for MLK activities, and limited funding is available for some uses. To ensure coordination and maximize publicity for the week, any person or organization planning an MLK-related event--even those not seeking funding--should submit a proposal.

Click here for a PDF of the proposal form, or call Dr. Vincent Lyon-Callo, assistant professor of anthropology, at (269) 387-3964 for a copy of the form. Interested faculty and staff members, as well as registered student organizations should submit proposals before 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29, to Lyon-Callo by campus mail or by fax to (269) 387-3999.

For more information, call Dr. Vincent Lyon-Callo at (269) 387-3964.
