Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Jan 16 2023, All day
Abbotsford School District

Observed on the third Monday of January each year, Martin Luther King Jr. Day commemorates the life experiences and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a prominent civil rights leader. It brings further awareness to the ongoing racial inequities experienced globally by Black-identifying communities, and the legacy of anti-Black racism in society. People are encouraged to use the day to reflect on the principles of racial equality and nonviolent social change espoused by Dr. King.
