This energizing event will take place on Monday, January 20, 2020 from 9 AM to 12 PM inside the Balboa Park Activity Center on the grounds of the beautiful Balboa Park. This year's theme is:

Our theme is a call to action to be heard by lifting our voices, be counted by participating in our democracy, and belong by creating a future where all of us can achieve our full potential in an environment of harmony, safety, equality, and justice.

In so doing, we create the Beloved Community that Dr. King envisioned.

Cultural Note: The SeaWorld entertainment includes Japanese Taiko drumming. However, Japanese New Year, unlike many other Asian cultures and countries falls on January 1st. Japanese solar-lunar New Year calendar was only used during the Tenpō and Edo eras which lasted from 1830 to 1872. Five years into the Meiji era (1873) the first day of January became the official and cultural New Year's Day in Japan.
