(Jan. 12, 2010)--UTSA community members are invited to participate in the Martin Luther King Day March and Commemoration on Monday, Jan. 18, hosted by the City of San Antonio. UTSA participation is coordinated by the Inclusion and Community Engagement Center.

The center has chartered two buses that will provide free transportation to and from the downtown march site. The buses will depart at 8:30 a.m. from the Convocation Center on the UTSA Main Campus and can accommodate 100 people. Participants are encouraged to wear UTSA sweatshirts, t-shirts or jackets to represent the university.

This marks the 24th anniversary of the march in honor of civil rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Martin Luther King Jr. More than 100,000 adults and children are expected to participate in the nearly three-mile march. San Antonio's march is the largest in the United States.

The MLK Commission organizes the march and leads the community effort of more than two dozen events paying tribute to King. A variety of educational, inspirational and celebratory events take place at city library branches, college and university campuses, and military installations.
