This Monday, January 20, 2020 is the annual Martin Luther King Jr Day luncheon at St. John's Baptist Church in Woburn.  The keynote speaker this year is Julia Mejia, Boston's newly appointed City Councilor at Large.  Ms Mejia moved to Boston at age 5 from the Domincan Republic, was raised by a single, undocumented mother and became the first member of her family to graduate from high school and college.  She understands what it means to overcome adversity.
