I Have a Dream
60th Anniversary Celebration

RAP invites you to attend a special day of hope and community on Saturday, August 26.  We will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.  This speech was first delivered at the pivotal civil rights march on Washington in 1963, and continues to resonate with many people to this day.


The free event will introduce this speech and the ideals of equality, community, and hope for the future as expressed by Dr. King to the public, with a special focus for the refugee community. We will have interpreters at the event in Spanish, Haitian Creole, Arabic, and Dari to bring Dr. King’s words alive to all attendees.

The afternoon will include music, a video presentation, speakers, an art activity and boxed lunch for all. This event is made possible by a grant from the State of New Jersey Office of Faith Based Initiatives Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission.


Saturday, August 26:  1 – 3 pm
