This is a cordial invitation to join in a multicultural civic dialog event being held on April 30th, 1:00 - 4:00 pm., Salt Lake Community College, Student Center Building, 4600 South Redwood Rd, Salt Lake City, Utah. The keynote speaker is Dr. Clyde Rivers. This event is structured around World Civility Day and The Golden Rule Project. It is critical that all of the voices in our communities are heard and to do that we must show up and interact with others to create constructive and diverse dialog. This is also part of a Martin Luther King, Jr. conversation series that members of the Governor's MLK Human Rights Commission, perform.
