Dear Martin Luther King Parade Volunteers and Participants, As directed by Mr. Derrick Johnson, President & CEO of the NAACP, I am regretfully informing you the Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade 2022 is definitively postponed until a later date. This decision was made in the light of the alarming rapid spread of the (COVID-19) OMICRON VARIANT, in addition the decision was made to close all NAACP offices until further notice. The NAACP most important concern has been to promote the health and safety of employees, members, volunteers, and event participants. As a Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade volunteer or participant we deeply value you and thank you for your willingness to keep the dream alive. However, during this time of global/national health concern we must stay vigilant and heed all warnings of the CDC and government authorities and take paramount precautions to make certain that you and your family are healthy and safe.However, everyone is encouraged to remember the celebration of Dr. King’s life and legacy exceeds a parade-it’s about SERVICE!
