Hundreds of residents are expected to observe the annual national commemoration of Justice Sunday by attending a local community forum in the Antelope Valley.
Date and time TBC. Held at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center (LPAC), located at 750 West Lancaster Boulevard.
From the 2017 event:
“The time is from 4 to 6, however the doors will be opening at 3, because we’ll have some community-based organizations and people sharing resources and information prior to the program starting,” said Naima Moore, Justice Sunday Committee Chairwoman.
Justice Sunday is an annual event observed in cities across the country to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event was founded by the National Alliance of Faith and Justice (NAFJ), a nonprofit association of criminal justice professionals and community leaders, whose mission is to promote the value of the inclusion of faith in addressing prevention, consequences and resolutions of crime with emphasis upon the most culpable and vulnerable issues and stakeholders.
Justice Sunday has been observed by millions since 2000 as a precursor to the Monday federal holiday observed as the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
