Uhuru MLK Day Philly
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Uhuru Furniture and the African People’s Education and Defense Fund(APEDF) are hosting our annual Martin Luther King Day Event and Volunteer Project. Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/uhuru-mlk-day-philly-tickets-84305137937. Contact us at email@example.com or 215-546-9616 ext 3 with any questions.
The black community today faces homelessness, imprisonment, unemployment, poverty and early death at higher rates than in the 1960s. Uhuru Furniture and the APEDF work to fight these disparities by creating programs for health, economic development, job training, employment, and education through the Uhuru Movement’s 50+ institutions of African self-determination.
Our MLK Day program begins at 10am with live music and videos and presentations of the civil rights movement and the work of APEDF today to continue the struggle for black self-determination. At 11:30am will be an outdoor volunteer project, after which volunteers return to Uhuru Furniture at 2:30pm for a free lunch.
