Part of Ottawa's multicultural community is an organization called Dream-Keepers which keeps alive the ‘dream' of Revd Martin Luther King Jr. that all races would live together one day in harmony. Every January, on or near the anniversary of King's birthday, Dream-Keepers celebrates with a public meeting in Ottawa City Hall and the presentation of a plaque honoring someone who has done outstanding work in promoting racial harmony.
