31st Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Luncheon
31st Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Luncheon

Public Employees for Community Concerns has chosen Eric Holder, Former United States Attorney General, to give the keynote address at the January 16, 2023, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Luncheon. The luncheon takes place at the Peoria Civic Center with the doors opening at 11 a.m., and the luncheon beginning at Noon. Tickets are $60 per person and tables of 10 can be purchased for $600. Tickets can be purchased on the website at www.mlkluncheon.com or at Peoria City Hal, City Clerk’s Office, Room 401. Checks can be made payable to Public Employees for Community Concerns and mailed to PO Box 11411, Peoria, IL 61612.

“We are honored to have Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as the keynote speaker for our Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon,” said Peoria Mayor Rita Ali. “As we commemorate the life and legacy of a leader who taught us to keep the dream alive and stand up for what is right, I believe his message will be an inspiration to everyone.”

 

Eric H. Holder, Jr. made history in 2009 when President Obama appointed him as attorney general, the first African American to hold that position. Holder served in the Obama Administration as attorney general from February 2009 to April 2015, the third longestserving attorney general in U.S. history. During his tenure, he championed hallmark legislation on voting rights, immigration law, national security, and same-sex marriage. Now, Holder has continued his pursuit for civil rights in his post-White House career, serving as Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee and using his unique expertise in his role as a leading voting rights advocate.
