We are incredibly honored and proud to announce that the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Colorado Holiday Commission’s Humanitarian Awards Committee has awarded RISE Colorado the 2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award. In the spirit of justice, democracy, peace and humanity, the award celebrates individuals and organizations that “have given freely from their hearts to others, who have given their talent, time and energy to meet unmet needs, stir hope, speak for the voiceless, and to build a better world, if for just one person at a time.” The awards ceremony will be celebrated on Tuesday, Jan. 10th 2017, in conjunction with a community reception and concert by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which is held annually to celebrate Dr. King’s life and work.
We dedicate this award to our Aurora families and community. We are honored and humbled to work alongside the Aurora community every day in the pursuit of educational equity. Thank you for your love, commitment, and dedication to our children and community!
