You didn’t have to look hard to find Eastern Washington University students, faculty and staff celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy on Monday. Groups joined together to participate in the annual MLK Unity Rally and March in downtown Spokane. Following lunch, many Eastern ambassadors spent the rest of the day helping others with service projects across Spokane County.

The images below highlight the messages of love and giving shared by the EWU community:
