In the spirit of bringing the message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to unincorporated areas of Orange County and surrounding communities, Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings has created the first Orange County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiative. Dr. King’s lifelong commitment to civil rights, nonviolence, and justice for all remains promising in today’s society. Through inclusiveness and collaboration, this initiative will commemorate his work and legacy for years to come.
Recently, the Orange County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiative created the, “Let’s Take It Personal” Pledge Campaign to recognize the equality, dignity and worth of every human being. This act of kindness and compassion is simple: take an individual, daily and deliberate stance to eradicate prejudice and bias from society.
