The Central Brooklyn Martin Luther King Commission has been a volunteer-led organization since its founding by Congressman Major Owens in 1985.


All donations or grants to the organization have been used to operate events and provide awards and gifts to Brooklyn's students.


Facing the next 30 years, the Commission is looking to "upgrade" its operations and what it can provide to Brooklyn's youth.  To continue and expand our work, your help is needed.
