The All Peoples Celebration will take place on January 21 at the Balboa Activity Center in Balboa Park. It brings together more than 1,000 diverse community members, business leaders, elected officials, faith leaders, artists, and students for an inspiring program and common goal of honoring the work and the sacrifice of Dr. King.
Greisa Martinez Rosas, deputy executive director of United We Dream, said the following:
“I am honored and humbled to be part of a gathering that celebrates Dr. King’s vision that all people should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of where they come from. Now more than ever, we must stand together to live up to Dr. King’s dream of hope and liberty for all. We are at our strongest when everybody’s rights and dignity are respected, when we embrace diversity and enable people from all walks of life to have the freedom to move and live unafraid.”
Andrea Guerrero, Executive Director of Alliance San Diego, said the following:
“We are thrilled to have Greisa Martinez Rosas as our keynote speaker at this year’s All Peoples celebration. In her work as a youth leader, Greisa has followed in the footsteps of Dr. King, using non-violent resistance to shed light on the injustices our communities have experienced. She uses love, not hate, to move us forward. Greisa has advocated for undocumented youth for over a decade, and continues to do so through her work with United We Dream. We look forward to celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. King with Greisa and our San Diego community.”
