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.
