2014 Martin Luther King Celebration Committee Solicits Workshop Proposals

Each year, for the past 32 years the MLK Jr. Celebration Committee has sponsored a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year's celebration will consist of a variety of workshops, a rally, and a march, featuring a theme that applies Dr. King's message to contemporary issues. This year's theme is: Rise Up! Restore the Dream!

The 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is looking for strong candidates to facilitate workshops for our 32nd Anniversary Celebration event on January 20, 2014, from 9:30AM-11:00AM.   The deadline for proposals to be submitted is Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:59 PM. 

The proposed workshops for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration are collected by the Workshop Subcommittee then recommended to the MLK Celebration Committee as a whole. The final approval will be determined by the MLK Celebration Committee.

To submit a workshop proposal, first read these guidelines, and then click on the submit a proposal link below.

Workshop guidelines are as follows. 

  1. Proposals must relate to this year's theme: Rise Up! Restore the Dream!
  2. If you propose a workshop, you must commit to participation if your proposal is accepted.
  3. 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 MLK Celebration Committee organizers.
  4. Facilitators and panelists must check in at Garfield High School at 9:00 AM.
  5. The Workshop Subcommittee may combine similar workshop proposals and ask those who made the proposals to work together.
  6. Workshop speaker panels must represent more than one organization.  Typically, workshops feature 2-3 speakers and leave at least 30-45 minutes for discussion.
  7. Workshops will not be considered unless a written proposal is submitted. 

If you do not have access to the Internet, please call (347) 869-6232 to discuss how to submit your workshop proposal.

Thank you for your proposals!
