In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington, D.C., opening to the public, the foundation behind the monument is hosting two events this week in the capital city.

On Wednesday, the foundation will hold an invitation-only anniversary gala in Washington titled “Moving the Dream Forward ...Forever a Stone of Hope,” celebrating the foundation's inaugural class of social justice fellows. The 50 young leaders from across America selected for the program came together virtually this summer to learn skills around leadership, advocacy, and community, organizing all modeled in the work of King himself.

The event will also honor the sponsors who helped create the program, as well as pay homage to members of Congress who have supported the foundation over the years, said Harry Johnson Sr., president and CEO of The Memorial Foundation.
