About Us

A significant focus on King Day and beyond will be creating the "Beloved Community," which Dr. King spoke about many times. Many projects will center on a holistic approach to promoting non-violence. This will include training volunteers in mentoring, literacy tutoring, conflict resolution, peer mediation, organizing safe corridors programs between schools and home, creating more after school programs, housing opportunities, job training, welfare to work opportunities, programs for ex-offenders, health care, conservation, legal assistance, murals and much more. Following each project, we encourage discussions and reflection about the legacy of King and how that applies to embracing his legacy today. This will be particularly important in our outreach to young people.
