This year’s Ecumenical Service features keynote speaker Asra Nomani, a native of Fairmont, WV.
Asra Nomani is Senior Fellow in the Practice of Journalism at Independent Women’s Network, the national grassroots and advocacy arm of Independent Women’s Voice.
A former reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Nomani is cofounder of Coalition for TJ, a group of parents and community members in Virginia that have brought a historic case advocating for academic excellence and equal rights to the courts. She is cofounder of the Pearl Project, an investigative reporting initiative, and cofounder of the Muslim Reform Movement.
The Ecumenical Service will also include a segment honoring the 2023 Living the Dream Award recipients. These awards are given to individuals who exemplify, through action or personal traits, the principles and ideals of Martin Luther King, Jr. in his pursuit of social change.
Join us as we recognize the talented student winners of the Project on Racism Contest and 39th Annual Poster Competition!
