Chico, CA – On this Wednesday, April 4, 2018 as the nation and world remembers and pays honor to Dr. Martin Luther King, many in the North State are also paying tribute.

Saying the work Dr. King started during the civil rights era is still far from over, members of Chico’s Peace and Justice Center are inviting the public to join in honoring the life and legacy of Dr. King; during a planned program later this evening.

Each time Emily Alma, with the Unity/Peace and Justice Center, says each time she visits and views the memorial statue located in Chico’s MLK Community Park, she is reminded of the continual need for increased awareness and the ongoing need for equality.

She says Dr. King’s message touting the importance of human rights is just as important for all citizens today as it was fifty years ago.

Alma says she views the civil rights era as an historic time. She does not, however, believe that Dr. King’s work ended racism, ended discrimination or inequality. Alma says she believes Dr. King was supporting civil rights not only for African Americans but for the economic rights for all people.

The Wednesday, April 4, 2018 Chico event to honor the legacy of Dr. King will begin at the Dorothy Johnson Center, located at 775 E. 16th Street, Chico, CA 95928, at 5:00PM.

Participants will then make a short walk to MLK Community Park and listen to Dr. King’s last speech, which was delivered the day before his assassination.

Showers are tapering off early Tuesday, and we're left with areas of dense fog for your Tuesday morning commute. We'll have clearing skies and warmer temperatures ahead for your Tuesday afternoon, but the next wet system will arrive on Wednesday. Some showers will linger Thursday, but we'll dry and and become chilly late this week. A substantial wet system will then bring heavy rain and snow to our region from Sunday through at least the start of next week.
