19th Ward Community Assocation

Martin Luther King, JR. 2021 Celebration!

Monday January 18 , 2021, is the 19th Ward Light up the Night from 6pm-8pm.  This is the 16th year of the 19th Ward’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Luminary Event and it’s right around the corner! 

We are calling on churches, businesses, neighbors, social clubs in the 19th Ward and throughout the Southwest Quadrant to join us in celebrating the life of one of America’s greatest cultural icon. We do this to express our solidarity with the values of Martin Luther King’s beloved community and his important campaign against racism, poverty and militarism.  We light up our neighborhood with luminaries, lanterns, and flashlights.   

Get your luminary kit!

The 19th Ward Community Association will have luminary kits ($5 suggested donation – includes 5 lights and 5 paper white bags) available at our office. Please email our Office Manager (19thward@19wca.org) to schedule a time for contactless pickup.

If you would like to support this event or the Association, you can use the donate below. Any amount helps!

The 19th Ward Community Association, formed in 1965, is one of the oldest Neighborhood Associations in the country. The Association formed to fight racist real estate practices, such as blockbusting and redlining, while purposefully cultivating a neighborhood that is diverse with respect to age, race, and class. We wish to celebrate our differences while uniting us as neighbors. We strive to preserve the residential character of our neighborhood, support our residents, and create opportunities that cultivate community. Learn more about our history from the history committee including a series of videos they made, see our newsletter for recent updates, and check out our events!

We are a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization. While donations and membership dues are crucial to our ongoing projects, anyone who lives in the 19th Ward is welcome to join at no cost. We are encourage those who are able to choose the relevant level of support, and everyone can sign up at the membership page.

President’s Message Zola Brown The 19th Ward Convention brought in a new way of communicating and a new President for 2021.  I enjoyed the Convention – especially the panel discussion – but missed the in-person interaction.  I missed trying a new dish or supporting a local pizza business and the raffle. This year was certainly different but necessary. It was good to know so many […]

President’s Message Zola Brown It is that time of the year:  boots, scarfs, hats and mixed-match gloves because, just like little kids, we can never keep up with them. November is here and the New Year is around the corner. I imagine everyone is looking for a better year than what we have endured through 2020. The November election may determine the outcome of your […]

President’s Message Zola Brown My favorite season has arrived – when tree foliage begins to change and the different colors on the trees are vibrant. The weather is a little cooler and a quart of apple cider has to be in the fridge. As we enter another season with hope for a better tomorrow, we must think about imagining new ways of doing things now […]
