Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan invite Minnesotans of all ages to join the 36th Annual State of Minnesota Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

As the civil rights leader said in 1957, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”

That’s why this year’s theme is Beloved Community in Action. Throughout the celebration, you’ll hear Minnesotans reflect on what Dr. King means to them and how they’re building a thriving society that embodies love and justice and works to end racism and poverty.

Watch the Celebration

Watch the 2022 celebration on the Governor's YouTube channel

The video is captioned in Hmong, Somali, and Spanish. All the videos will be available indefinitely.

After watching the video, we invite you to share ways you are creating a Beloved Community by using #MNMLK on social media.

Thank you!

This year’s virtual celebration would not have been possible without support from so many.
