The MLK Luminary Project

On the night January 21st, we ask families to light up the outside of their home with Luminaries, white bags with votive candles inside that can be decorated with Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision. The goal is for 1500 homes and businesses in SOMA to be lit up as a sign of hope, sanctuary, peace, and solidarity with Dr. King’s vision of the Beloved Community.

The Luminaries come four in a pack for a suggested donation of $10 and it is a fundraiser for the Coalition. Purchase Luminaries at Words Bookstore in Maplewood, Sparkhouse toy store in South Orange or at the Coalition’s office. Look for the signs in in your neighborhood or call us to become a neighborhood leader where your neighbors can pick up their luminaries! For more information, please call 973-761-6116.
