CHRO Connects: MLK Bell Ringing Ceremony

“I ask you, everyone sitting here today, what is in your heart? ” Cheryl Sharp, the Deputy Director for the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, told the crowd. “Equality, the need for it? Peace? Honor?”

On January 19, Deputy Director Cheryl Sharp provided the welcome at the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Bell Ringing Ceremony. The Ceremony was held at the state Capitol and was preceded by a legislative breakfast.  For many years the Commission has served as the Secretariat for the MLK Holiday Commission.  This year, CHRO Representative Yvette Moore has served as the liaison to the MLK Commission.
