The walk begins at noon. This will be a family-friend event with activities, entertainment and a white dove release in honor of Dr. King.

This year, the Birmingham Metro Diversity Coalition is partnering with the Birmingham Peace Project and Greater Birmingham Ministries to provide food for area families. Everyone who attends the walk is asked to bring non-perishable food items.
