Billings, MT. Not In Our Town Billings will host the 2nd Annual “I AM BILLINGS” community photo shoot to commemorate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The event will kick off at noon on January 14th on the top floor of the MSU Billings Parking Garage and is open to any member of the Billings community.
"The idea is to visually celebrate our diversity…for us as community to actively be the dream of Dr. King." says Not In Our Town board member, Debbie Brown . The event will open with a greeting from the Not In Our Town Billings Chairperson, Eran Thompson several Billings' community leaders.
“It is my hope that we can make this the largest community photo ever taken in Billings. It’s an opportunity for us to stand together with neighbors, friends, and family regardless of race or religion and loudly proclaim “I am Billings” said Not In Our Town Chairperson, Eran Thompson.
"It's easy to forget how diverse our community really is," says Not In Our Town member Crystal Rondeaux, "This photo will serve to remind Billings residents how rich we are in culture and ethnicity. What better way to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King?"
