As you remember Martin Luther King Jr. and his work during the month of January, we invite you to learn about events and initiatives being held by The King Center. Last year, The King Center, in partnership with Kaplan University, engaged college students and the general public in Atlanta, Georgia, in a panel discussion titled "From Public Policy to Personal Responsibility." The panel discussed the implications of nonviolence on college campuses and in communities. In 2016, The King Center is calling on everyone to choose nonviolence as a lifestyle and asking everyone to be part of their "Nonviolence 365" initiative which is a live and online interactive experience where participants can use the hashtag #choosenonviolence and share ideas and actions related to nonviolence. The King Center is also holding its Annual Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner where they will honor individuals and organizations who have helped build Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s beloved community and exemplify a commitment to his principles and philosophies.
