Virginia Union University will host the
42nd Annual Community Leaders Breakfast to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Friday, January 17, 2020 at 7:30 a.m. at the Richmond Marriott Hotel, 500 E Broad St, Richmond, VA 23219

This year's Keynote Address will be given by Virginia House of Delegates Speaker-Elect Eileen Filler-Corn (D-41) and members of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus (VLBC) will be honored with the 2020 Martin Luther King, Jr Award for Civic Leadership. Governor Ralph Northam will also speak during the breakfast event.

“This is a historic legislative year for the Commonwealth of Virginia with the first woman being elected to serve as Speaker of the House of Delegates. We also want to recognize the dedicated service of the members of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus for addressing the needs of under-represented people across the Commonwealth,” said Dr. Hakim Lucas, President and CEO of Virginia Union University. “We see this as a moment that Dr. King worked for and is significant to preserving his legacy.”

We expect to host 800 attendees who represent the university, community, and corporations throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Purchase tickets or sponsor a table using the form below.
