Mission Statement

The mission of the King Association is to preserve and advance the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., through educating, interpreting, advocating and promoting nonviolent theory and philosophy. The Association works with schools, colleges and universities, with corporations and business organizations, with religious and community groups as well as the general public. In 1985, Governor Richard Thornburgh designated the Association as a resource center in Pennsylvania to develop leadership to develop leadership in working toward "nonviolent social change" in all walks of life.

Description

The Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Association for Nonviolence, Inc. was founded by the Late Dr. C. DeLores Tucker and a group of local leaders in 1983.

Dr. King's widow, the Late Coretta Scott King, knew that Philadelphia held a special place in her late husband's heart and thought it fitting to have a permanent organization dedicated to his ideals of peace and freedom in the City of Brotherly Love. The Association is the only affiliate commissioned by Mrs. King and the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia. Philadelphia has and continues to enjoy a unique and historic role in the life of Dr. King and his memory through the programs of the Association.
