For the last 34 years, The Skanner Foundation has invited the community to celebrate the life of civil rights giant the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. at our shared breakfast event. This year we are inviting you to join us on the morning of Jan. 18, 2021 to once again honor Dr. King's life and legacy.

Save the date!

This year the Skanner Foundation's Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast will be different. We cannot gather at a local hotel or the Portland Convention Center ---even though we wish we could and we pledge we will do so again.

This year the coronavirus pandemic means we must give up being together in person. But we can still have our community celebration. We can still support our young people with scholarships. And we can still join together in a commitment to make our world a better place.

This year we invite you to join us for a 9 a.m. breakfast on January 18, 2021. We will be premiering a specially created video edition of the 35th Annual Skanner Foundation Breakfast. And we are inviting you to tune in and share breakfast with us.

And this year you can have anything you like for breakfast--cereal, bacon and eggs or a kale smoothie--because this year is going to be a potluck and you will be bringing your own breakfast.

We'll be announcing the speaker soon – watch this space and sign up for our newsletter – and we are working on a fantastic lineup to inspire us to begin 2021 with joy and determination to bring Dr. King's dream a little closer to reality.
