Several staff members from CFI were invited to attend the 27th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan of Milwaukee at Potawatomi Casino and Hotel.

The event featured hundreds of community members and leaders to celebrate and honor the life and teaching of MLK. Dina Abercrombie, social responsibility committee chair at YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee, and the honorable Judge Derek Mosley, YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee board member, served as the co-emcees.

Guest speakers included Governor Tony Evers, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, City of Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson and Senator Tammy Baldwin.

The theme for this year’s event was “What affects one … affects all.”
