Sponsored by the Office of Community and Equity, Episcopal High School's 4th Annual MLK Jr. Day Symposium aims to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and celebrate his legacy and ideals. This year's focus on justice brings together a variety of voices and perspectives. We endeavor to foster a greater awareness of the role Dr. King has played in the lives of all, and to facilitate conversations and workshops that promote equity and inclusion within our community and the larger global community of which we are a small part.
