36th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade

Sunday, January 17, 2016

On behalf of the SDSU Martin Luther King Parade Planning Committee, President Elliot Hirshman, Provost Chukuka S. Enwemeka and Vice President for Student Affairs Eric Rivera, we invite students, their families, student organizations, alumni and community members to join the SDSU delegation as we march under a unified SDSU banner in the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade.

Please join us in honoring one of our most prominent civil rights leaders. Celebrate the dream by participating in this annual event. Participants are encouraged to wear red and black to show your SDSU spirit!

See you all there!
