The Danvers Human Rights and Inclusion Committee


Each year since 1999, the Danvers Committee for Diversity has brought the community together in a celebration of community and the ideals that Dr. King lived and died for.


The Drum Major for Justice award has been presented to individuals and organizations in our community whose actions have helped Danvers become a community that values tolerance, equality and justice for all.


This year's tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. will be held on Monday, January 16, 2017.
