Celebrate the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday at the 27th annual MLK awards breakfast, “Stand Up for Justice,” from 7 to 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 18 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, 340 N. Third St. Doors open at 6:30 a.m.

The event recognizes one winner for the Calvin C. Goode Lifetime Achievement award and five individuals for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Living the Dream Award who have made Phoenix a better place to live through a lifelong commitment to creating a compassionate and socially just society.

Recipients are Carole Coles Henry for the Calvin C. Goode Lifetime Achievement award and Ervin Cutright, Kenja Hassan, Lin Ling Lee, Lakhwinder Singh (Rana) Sodhi and Robert L. Williams for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Living the Dream awards.

The Calvin C.

The award is named for former Phoenix City Councilman Calvin C. Goode, who worked to ensure these rights for all residents during his 22 year tenure with the Phoenix City Council. It was during Goode’s service to the city that the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. state holiday was created.
