Follow j. on   and 

The S.F.-based Jewish Community Relations Council is inviting members of the Jewish community to take part in the Bay Area’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. march and celebration on Monday, Jan. 20 in San Francisco.

The contingent will meet at the corner of Fourth and King streets, near the CalTrain station, at 10:45 a.m. Look for the JCRC banner. The group will leave on the 1.5-mile march no later than 11 a.m.

The march will conclude at the MLK waterfall at Yerba Buena Gardens. There, under the auspices of the San Francisco Interfaith Council, faith leaders will remember King’s vision and reflect on the continued fight for civil rights and equal opportunity. A variety of programming will take place through 5 p.m.

Those who walk with JCRC will receive a free T-shirt to wear during the march.
