MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. CELEBRATION OF UNITY
The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is the largest event that Breakthrough Project hosts. It is an event meant to honor and commemorate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and his message of peace and equality. Breakthrough Project recognizes local peacemakers and civil servants in Lodi, by recognizing and awarding their devotion to making Lodi a better place for all.
Students in fifth and sixth grade are encouraged to take part in the district wide, Art Raab essay contest. Art Raab was an original founder of Breakthrough Project, and the purpose of the contest is to honor his commitment to education, and ensure that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words of wisdom are not lost amongst Lodi’s youth.
