Martin Luther King Jr.Even now, a half century after his death, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s contribution to developing a more equal society, one where all Americans have the opportunity to succeed remains unmatched.

I encourage you to give back to the community in Dr. King's honor. You can perform community service or stand up for an ideal you believe in, while working to make the world a better place. Fight to improve the lives of others, this is the legacy I believe Dr. King would want in his memory.

Below, please find a list of service events happening around our District.

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Hosted by Assemblymember Anna Caballero & Salinas City Councilman Steve McShane

Time:  6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: Salinas City Hall Rotunda, 200 Lincoln Ave, Salinas

For decades Salinas has suffered some of the greatest housing challenges in the United States. Chronic homelessness has made the situation worse. Solutions such as industry funded housing projects and the recent addition of the Monterey Bay Housing Trust have helped. However, the situation worsens by the day and creative solutions working with the County and State are required. This event is a community meeting on the topic of “State & Local Creative Housing Solutions.” A expert panel has been assembled to share the state of housing and public housing incentives and programs. Guests will hear from various organizations & individuals that have made their careers on the topic. Reports will be followed by discussion and ultimately, question and answers from the public.
