    Idaho Human Rights Day Virtual Concert

    Idaho Human Rights Day

    Idaho Human Rights Day is a state holiday recognized only in the state of Idaho. Gov. Cecil D. Andrus signed compromise legislation on April 10, 1990, making Idaho the nation’s 47th state to honor slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. with an official state holiday. Andrus created Martin Luther King Jr.-Idaho Human Rights Day on the third Monday in January, corresponding with the federal holiday first celebrated in 1986.

    The holiday is celebrated simultaneously each year on the same day as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The full name of the holiday in the state of Idaho is Martin Luther King, Jr. – Idaho Human Rights Day
