Santa Barbara Rally, March to Honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The Santa Barbara community will be taking to the streets Monday in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, an annual tradition that invites people to celebrate the life of the slain civil-rights leader.

The downtown festivities will again be hosted by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee of Santa Barbara, and will include the traditional rally and march.

From 8 to 9 a.m. Monday, the public is invited to gather in De la Guerra Plaza, where an hourlong service will be held.

Around 10:30 a.m., participants are invited to march north on State Street to the Arlington Theatre, at 1317 State St., where more events will be held.

Organizers are expecting about 350 people to attend Monday’s events, and State Street will be closed intermittently throughout the march.

Government offices, the public library, the U.S. Postal Service and banks will be closed Monday for the holiday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
