On Sunday January 19th York Mayor Kim Bracey and Asbury United Methodist Church held their 2nd Annual MLK America's Sunday Supper: Where Do We Go From Here? The event took place at Lincoln Charter School.

Members of the community came together, shared a meal, and discussed the current state of the area's youth after viewing the documentary "The Graduates", which explores the pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latin students from across the United States.

"It gives me great pleasure to once again honor the rich legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the City of York by encouraging our community to gather together and discuss new and current solutions to uplift our youth," states Mayor Bracey.

MLK America's Sunday Supper is a national event sponsored by Rethink Church and Points of Light, which is inspired by the legacy of Dr. King to invite individuals from diverse backgrounds to come together, share a meal, and discuss issues that affect their community, while highlighting the power that each individual has to make a difference.

Community members are encouraged to bring footwear in any condition to provide to the Shoes for Shalom project, in which shoes will be sent to Haiti, South America, and Africa to micro-finance new businesses.
