When the idea of the memorial was first conceived, the founders dreamt of it being more than a monument, but a magnet for folks from all walks of life. Over the years, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial has hosted events ranging from candlelight vigils to conferences.

Check out our upcoming event schedule:

2023 - Global Youth Leadership Conference

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Global Youth Leadership Conference is coming to Los Angeles, California. During the conference, High School seniors will be provided tools to become more effective in reaching their goals and fulfilling their dreams. They will be given an opportunity to learn leadership principles advocated by Dr. King and his contemporaries. This is done through a challenging curriculum designed to build and enhance the student’s leadership skills, hear how to apply and pay for college, learn a valuable STEM component, have discussions on social justice with the focus on “taking protest to policy” and understand how to effectively implement change within their respective communities. Join us at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 from 10:00am – 2:00pm.  This is a conference you don’t want to miss!
