On Monday, January 18th Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network (NAN) will welcome prominent clergy, elected officials and civil rights leaders at the House of Justice for their Annual Martin Luther King Day Public Policy Forum to honor the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The program will take place at NAN's House of Justice at 106 W. 145 Street in Harlem and runs from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Following the deadly insurrection on Capitol Hill, this year’s forum will seek to use Dr. King’s teachings to combat hate and inequality through political advocacy. National Action Network has been dedicated to the fight for justice and equality for decades by taking the teachings of Dr. King and applying them to the modern civil rights agenda.

  • Temperatures will be taken upon arrival
