Volunteer for the MLK March on West

Dec 20, 2017 by April N Cavaletto

The annual Martin Luther King Jr. March on West is a tradition at Arizona State University’s West campus that dates back to 1991. On this day, hundreds of middle school students participate in interactive educational presentations about the civil rights movement before preparing posters and recreating the historical 1963 March on Washington, D.C. At the end of the march they hear the inspirational “I have a dream” speech reenacted by ASU faculty member Charles St. Clair.

The event this year will take place on Wednesday, January 17th, 2018.

Volunteer check-in will begin in Changemaker Central at 8:00am.
