BILLINGS -

This year, our nation celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech. To honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Not In Our Town Billings is holding their 4th Annual "I am Billings" Community Photo.

Not In Our Town Billings is an anti-discrimination group and every year, the organization invites people of all races, religion, gender, and sexual orientation together for a community photo. The photo declares that we are Billings, and it's ok to be diverse. In addition to the community photo, many other events are also being held in honor of Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.
