The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Human Rights Breakfast is an event sponsored annually by the Latah County Human Rights Task Force since 1994, and will next occur on Saturday January 16, 2021 beginning at 9:30 am as a virtual Zoom meeting.

The Breakfast which is presented with the assistance of Moscow H.S. Human Rights and Environmental Club students and Americorps Members consists of breakfast, entertainment, awards and guest speakers. Speakers have included Vernon Baker, African American recipient of the U.S. Medal of Honor for bravery in World War II; Tammy Schnitzer, coordinator of the “Not in our Town” project in Billings, Montana and nationally syndicated columnist and author, Leonard Pitts.

Each year at the Breakfast, the Rosa Parks Award for Outstanding Service and Dedication to human rights in our area is presented to a deserving member of our community, and in 1998 a Junior Award was added to encourage and recognize the work of high school and University students. Some of the past awards have gone to Michael Chin, Taly Bialostocki, Amtul Sheik and Anne Gorman.

Our Breakfast will be virtual in 2021 and we still rely on this as our major fundraiser for the year, so we encourage you to donate what you can by either visiting our donation page: Make a Donation, or mail in the form at the bottom of this page: 2021 Breakfast
