Repair the Martin Luther King Jr. Sculpture

Tax deductible
We're devastated to report that the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Denver's City Park was vandalized on Tuesday night (2/20), resulting in the theft of several pieces of the marble and bronze "I Have a Dream" memorial. Among the missing pieces are a bronze torch and angel, as well as a bronze panel honoring Black military veterans.

Honorable Wilma Webb, a champion for civil rights who played a pivotal role in establishing the MLK Jr. Holiday in 1984, chaired the committee responsible for bringing this memorial to life. Collaborating with artist Ed Dwight in 2002, they created a poignant tribute featuring a bronze statue of King alongside smaller statues commemorating Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth, and Frederick Douglass.

In response to this tragic event, Wilma and Wellington Webb, both esteemed figures in our community, have come together to launch this GoFundMe page. Their joint efforts aim to raise funds for repairs and bolster security measures in the area. Your generous support will not only help restore this significant monument but also ensure its protection for generations to come. Let's unite to preserve Dr. King's legacy and uphold the values of peace, justice, and equality that he stood for.
