Robert M. Coatie MLK Youth Forum & Peace Walk
Wednesday, January 23 at 10:00am to 12:00pm
WUC - Wolfe University Center, Wolfe Center Ballroom
3000 NE 151st ST 33181, Wolfe University Center, Miami, Florida 33181
The Robert M. Coatie Youth Forum follows in the spirit of the MLK Commemorative Breakfast. While the focus is to target middle and high school students, the dedication is at the same level in bringing renowned speakers to inspire these youths to not only achieve their best, but to follow the ideals of Dr. King in their everyday lives.
The MLK Peace Walk is a companion event to the MLK Youth Forum, and occurs right after that event. The Peace Walk is the brain child of Kimberly Atchinson, a former employee of the Office of International Students and Scholars Services, in response to the Columbine Shootings. The Peace Walk is a reflective walk by Biscayne Bay to promote the idea of worldwide peace.
