The 2023 theme, "Lighting the Pathway: Renewing, Reviving, Restoring, and Remembering the Dream" serves as a call to action. Our hope is to, like King, inspire people to find their path in the fight for social justice, equity, and access for all people, no matter their creed; acknowledging everyone has their own path and must choose when to begin their journey.

This celebration will not only inspire engagement through reflection activities, but also encourage people to journey on their pathway to justice. Our goal is to move from expectionalism to mobilizing King's dream. We agree with Dr. King in his belief that "darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that." The events will be an opportunity for you to ignite your gleaming and glowing light! We encourage you to join us as we commemorate, celebrate, and continue the King dream!
  1. Day of Servic​​​​​​e​​​​​​
    • Social Media Campaign" The Center for Culture, Equity, and Empowerment is hosting a virtual campaign to fight systematic injustice by joining together with others in collective action. How can we be in solidarity with those who are seeking support? Simply by taking action, our hope is to be able to demonstrate that doing the ‘work’ can take on many forms; and, by embodying a love ethic beyond care, we can fortify the people that are in need of our support, because all of our lives depend on it.
    • We are aware that many of you may be going home to places outside of Fairfax county, therefore, we will be creating a map comprised of several groups local to the 50 states. Please be on the look out for this! The map will be made available this week on Mason360 and our IG at @masonccee
