2009 MLK Commemorative Symposium on Social Change – Call for Programs: November 24
November 4, 2008, Volume 55, No. 11

Dear Penn and Philadelphia Community:

Penn’s MLK Program Planning Committee would like to request your participation in planning or sponsoring an event or activity to commemorate Dr. King’s life during our annual symposium. The programs can be an opportunity for reflection and action on contemporary issues that speak to social change and justice and incorporate King’s vision to end racism and poverty, strengthen and embrace diversity and support free expression. The programming committee would be happy to assist you over the next few weeks in submitting a successful event consistent with the legacy of Dr. King. Submission Deadline: November 24, 2008

To learn more about Penn’s MLK Symposium, visit the website www.upenn.edu/aarc/mlk/calendar.htm. View the 2008 calendar for program ideas, as well as learn about our Annual Day of Service and Community Involvement Awards and past awardees. 

Here’s how you can get involved:

• Submit a brief description of your program: including the date, time, location, and intended audience no later than November 24, 2008. Program submissions can be submitted online at www.upenn.edu/aarc/mlk/dos.htm

• Don’t have time to plan a program? Sponsor one by collaborating with other organizations on campus and with the Philadelphia community. We can help connect you. 

• Contribute to the success of the symposium by donating needed money and resources, which will greatly enhance the success of the symposium. Your donations will go toward honorariums for speakers, the Day of Service Projects and other logistical needs for the two weeks of programming.
