This marks the 13th consecutive year MGM Resorts has been a presenting sponsor.

As in prior years, MGM Resorts employees will march alongside the company's float reflecting the year's theme. This year, the theme is "Living the Dream – It Starts with Me (Shifting Priorities to Create the Beloved Community)."

"At MGM Resorts, we strive to live up to the teachings of Dr. King by embracing our differences, celebrating diversity and making a positive impact in the communities where we operate," said Jyoti Chopra, Chief People, Inclusion and Sustainability Officer at MGM Resorts International.

Throughout January, MGM Resorts' Nevada-based employees will honor Dr. King's legacy by participating in several service projects across the Las Vegas valley. Projects include supporting St. Jude's Ranch for Children, organizing warehouses at Three Square Food Bank and a park cleanup with Get Outdoors Nevada.
