Join MCC, in collaboration with Kingdom Builders Network (KBN), on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for a day of celebration and service as we remember those in prison who are often forgotten and discarded from communities. 

This is a hybrid event. Registration is required for in-person attendance. The event will be livestreamed via Germantown Mennonite Church Facebook page - no registration is required for this.  

At the event you will... 

  • Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of peace and justice through music and spoken word. 
  • Learn about health justice in prison through a panel discussion and Q&A. 
  • Serve by assembling prison care kits for those currently incarcerated to meet their needs and restore hope and dignity in a place that often seems hopeless. 

Bring prison care kits to the event or an MCC kit drop-off location!
