3rd Annual Community Summit Celebrates Diversity, Tolerance, Multiculturalism
DreamWeek is almost too big to explain. It’s a multi-day citywide summit that celebrates San Antonio’s diversity, tolerance and multiculturalism. Numerous organizations across the city will participate and host more then 40 events during the 12-day period, culminating with the Martin Luther King, Jr., march on Monday, Jan. 19. Events will include exhibits, lectures, mixers and much more.
