41st Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Asheville & Buncombe County, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) entity, is currently planning for our 41st annual MLK, Jr. Celebration events. The  speaker for the Prayer Breakfast will be Marcia Johnson-Blanco, co-director of the Lawyers’ Committee’s Voting Rights Project.

Marcia Johnson-Blanco is the Co-director of the Lawyers’ Committee’s Voting Rights Project. She
manages the Project’s programmatic and advocacy portfolios which include leading Election Protection, the
nation’s largest non-partisan voter protection program, overseeing the work of the National Commission on
Voting Rights, promoting election reform, ensuring minority participation in the redistricting process and
ensuring that those with felony convictions regain their right to vote.

Marcia is a recognized leader in voting rights who has participated in countless voting rights discussions at
conferences and in the media. She also coordinates the Lawyer’s Committee’s international human rights
initiatives. She has worked on shadow reports discussing U.S. compliance with two important treaties: the
International Convention on the Elimination on all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and the
International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and has presented before the reviewing bodies
during treaty reviews in Geneva Switzerland. Additionally, she serves as the co-chair of the CERD taskforce
of the U.S. Human Rights Network.
