Public Invited to 3rd Annual #TheRealDearborn Unity March

Public Invited to Join In 3rd Annual #TheRealDearborn Unity March

For the third straight year Dearborn students have organized #TheRealDearborn Unity March, inviting the public to participate at 1 p.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 15.

Concerned about inaccurate descriptions of life in Dearborn, students from Dearborn, Edsel Ford, and Fordson have worked together to once again organize the march in an effort to bring people together and show the diversity and unity of Dearborn. The students agreed that Martin Luther King Day was the perfect time to hold #TheRealDeaborn Unity March celebrating Dearborn’s historic diversity, rich culture, and united community.

“The students believe strongly in their city and have worked hard to host an event that showcases the welcoming community spirit that thrives in Dearborn and gives everyone the opportunity to show their support,” Dr. Maleyko commented. “They invite everyone to participate.”

The public is invited to gather outside the west entrance of the Michael Guido Theater located at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, 48126 at 1 p.m. to take part in the event. Those in attendance will march from the theater entrance a short distance to the Henry Ford Centennial Library and then back to the theater. The event will then move indoors for a short program that includes students sharing their stories and readings to demonstrate how life in Dearborn exemplifies Dr. King’s message of brotherhood/sisterhood.

The students organizing the march hope the approximately 90-minute long event will draw hundreds of supportive youth and families, community leaders and civic organization members. Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko, Dearborn Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr., and other prominent members of the community are already planning to attend.

The students encourage people to visit the Twitter and Instagram accounts promoting the January 15 #TheRealDearborn March. People are invited to post photos and comments @RealDearborn.

For more information about how you or your organization can take part in the January 15th #TheRealDearborn March, please contact Ms. Violet Souweidane at souweiv@dearbornschools.org or Ms. Norma Harb at HarbN@dearbornschools.org. Media inquiries should contact Dearborn Public Schools Director of Communications Mr. David Mustonen at mustond@dearbornschools.org or (313) 827-3006.
