SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Tomorrow might just be a day off work for some but for the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission, this weekend marks their largest annual event.
Sunday marked their 28th Martin Luther King Jr. celebration.
The event started with a community rally and ended with a special program where attendees were invited to look at how they could play a part in human rights almost 50 years later.
It's held each year to celebrate King's dream, but according to members of the commission, it isn't all about remembrance.
"As either a community member or parent, we all have a role to play to make sure that the injustices are brought to justice and that's making wrong things right," said Angelicia Morris, Executive Director of the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission
The event also featured Penelope Andrews, the Dean of Albany Law School and music from the King Choir and Union College Gospel Choir.
