Jacksonville — It’s a change of plans ahead for the City of Jacksonville’s Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast.
This year the City is inviting the community to celebrate the life, legacy, and service of Dr. King virtually.
The January 15th breakfast will feature a panel of community leaders who will discuss racial injustice, education, healthcare, economic mobility, and moderated questions. Panelists include Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools and 2021 Florida Superintendent of the Year Dr. Diana Greene, UF Health CEO Dr. Leon Haley and United Way of Northeast Florida President and CEO Michelle Braun.
The program will also recognize three local students as the 2021 Tomorrow’s Leaders presented by VyStar Credit Union. Tomorrow’s Leaders is a component of the breakfast that looks to recognize and award youth in the community who are exemplifying the philosophies of Dr. King through leadership, community volunteerism, and civic responsibility.
The event will be hosted and moderated by Joy Purdy from News4Jax and Anthony Austin from First Coast News.
Tickets can be purchased HERE.
