Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a vision for what he called the Beloved Community- a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one's fellow human beings.
This year in response to COVID-19, we're pivoting from one day of service, to a kick-off of various service projects all week from January 17 to 23, 2021.
Our hope is that during our kickoff week we create a platform for long-lasting change in honor of Dr. King's legacy that brings us together virtually to discuss important issues that will lead us down the pathway to become that Beloved Community Dr. King envisioned.
That's why we need your help to expand our video series called Your Voice, Your Views where we are highlighting the voices that make up our diverse communities around social issues, human issues, equity issues. We want to hear from you around your views on:
Juvenile Justice Reform
Title I Funding
Low Performing Schools
Parenting in the new normal
Videos will be shared on our social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram via IGTV and Instastories, as well as on our blog, during annual reports, submitted with grants, and shared with stakeholders to encourage dialogue and solutions forward for these challenging times.
