Dozens of ADL supporters gathered at the offices of the Mountain States Anti-Defamation League to remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and then joined with a record-breaking crowd of over 30,000 civil rights supporters who chose to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day “A Day On, Not a Day Off” by walking in Denver’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Marade. Everyone who marched with ADL was given an ADL sign that proclaimed either “Respect for All”, “Civil Rights for All”, “Our Differences Make us Stronger” or “Stand Up for Civil Rights” and proudly marched the many blocks from City Park down Colfax to Civic Center Park.


At the end of the Marade at Civic Center Park, marchers had an opportunity to stop by ADL’s booth and pick up a free 2015 Positive Impact! Calendar.  Over 1,000 calendars were distributed to families, teachers, students, community leaders and individuals wanting to promote respect in their communities.
