Pearland MLK Celebration Committee


Pearland MLKCC was established in 2017 by a group of Brazoria County, Texas civic leaders who noticed the rapid multicultural growth of the area and wanted to create an event to celebrate the unity and diversity of northern Brazoria of which Pearland is the largest city by population.  The leaders also noticed a void in the acknowledgement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, which is a national holiday, and decided that a parade and other complementary activities would enhance the community's current list of events.

Pearland MLKCC is a Texas non-profit corporation and shall be operated exclusively for charitable (including relief of the poor, distressed, or underprivileged; erecting or building public buildings, monuments, or works; lessening the burdens of government; lessening neighborhood tensions; eliminating prejudice and discrimination; and defending human and civil rights secured by law), literary, and educational purposes under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code.
