Martin Luther King, Jr. commemorated at San Diego community events

This week, San Diego, California celebrates the great Martin Luther King, Jr., an American Baptist minister and activist who made a significant impact in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s by propagating peace, racial equality, and goodwill to all people.

The University of California in San Diego is gearing up to host its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, which is supported by UCSD’s Volunteer50 Initiative. Students from out of town and all across the state are invited to spend time volunteering through charitable acts and community services throughout the year. A commencement event kicking off the community service program took place on Sunday, January 17 at Father Joe’s Villages on 1501 Imperial Avenue.

Volunteers also attended the 36th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade along North Harbor Drive from the County Administration Center to Pacific Highway, near Seaport Village and Ruocco Park in honor of the community service event. The parade is sponsored by the nonprofit Zeta Sigma Lambda Foundation, which is a part of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, of which King himself was a member.

These exciting and charitable events represent just a few of the fantastic things you can enjoy at San Diego. If you’re interested in exploring our luxurious townhomes and gorgeous beaches, contact us at South Mission Beach to learn more.
