Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Interfaith Activities

“Now is the Time”

The San Francisco Interfaith Council invites faith leaders and their congregants to join in the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebrations to be held on Monday, January 20, 2014 at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Gardens.

Interfaith activities will include the 4th annual interfaith tribute to the Selma-to-Montgomery march and symbolic crossing of the Edmund Pettis Bridge. The tribute will take place during the annual March/Parade as it crosses San Francisco’s Lefty O’Doul Bridge and briefly stops at Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park. The 2014 March/Parade will begin promptly at 11:00 am (arrive early) from the Caltrain Depot at 4th and Townsend.

Once the March/Parade arrives at Yerba Buena Gardens, the 4th Annual Interfaith Commemoration Ceremony will commence. Spiritual leaders from a host of faith traditions will offer prayers remembering both the vision and sacrifice of Dr. King.

A host of other activities and programs that will take place to mark the occasion may be found on the San Francisco Interfaith Council Partner organization’s website.
