MLK Celebration Planning

Although I can hardly believe it, MLK day is getting close. Here’s a message for anyone interested in hosting a workshop on the morning of the celebration:

2008 Martin Luther King Celebration Committee Solicits Workshop

Please forward this announcement to others and/or print it out and give
to those who don’t have internet access.

Each year, the MLKCC sponsors a commemoration of Martin Luther King Day
with workshops, a rally and a march, featuring a theme that applies Dr.
King’s message to contemporary issues. This year’s theme is “Let Freedom
Ring: End Racism, Poverty and War.”

The workshop sub-committee of the MLKCC is seeking proposals for
workshops to take place on Monday, Jan. 21 at Franklin High School from
9:30 am-10:45 am. The deadline for proposals to be submitted is Friday
December 14, 2007. The workshop sub-committee will then recommend a list
of workshops to be approved by the MLK Celebration Committee as a whole.

Guidelines for proposals:

1) The facilitator of the workshop is responsible for organizing the
workshop, confirming the speakers, chairing the workshop, circulating
the sign-in list during the workshop and returning the sign-in list to
MLKCC organizers.

2) If you propose a workshop and your proposal is accepted, you must
commit to participation.

3) Proposals must relate to the theme : “Let Freedom Ring: End
Racism, Poverty and War.”

4) The workshop committee may combine similar workshop proposals and
ask those who made the proposals to work together.

5) Workshop speaker panels must represent more than one organization.
Typically, workshops feature 2-3 speakers and leave at least 30-45
minutes for discussion.

6) Workshops will not be considered unless a written proposal is
submitted. The preferred mode of submission is through the online
proposal form at www.mlkseattle. org

7) If you do not have access to the internet, please contact Mr. John
Metcalf of the Workshop Committee to receive a paper proposal form and
make other arrangements for submitting the form, by calling
