March with the ACLU in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Marade

Denver’s MLK Parade is one of the largest in the nation. Join us next Monday, along with 20,000 or so other celebrants of civil rights, to honor the memory of Dr. King, and remind the world that his dream still needs our tireless support.

The "Marade" begins at 9:30 a.m. in City Park and marches down Colfax to Civic Center Park. Dress warmly!
