Join the Lane County community as they celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and the work he did to advance issues of equity and justice in America. In 2020, commemorate the women who have made invaluable contributions to the Civil Rights Movement with the theme "Honoring the Women of the Movement," in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Women's Suffrage in the United States. The march will begin at the North Gate of Autzen Stadium (2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd) and conclude at The Shedd Institute (868 High St) in downtown Eugene. At The Shedd Institute, distinguished guests will present an hour-long program and the City of Eugene Human Rights Award will be presented.
