Dr. King

2008 marks 40-years since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, thus, it is especially important to connect more intentionally with the principles upon which Dr. King built his life, his service, and the movement that he championed—the principles of nonviolence. He believed that applying the principles of nonviolence in all areas of one’s life would ultimately bring about the Beloved Community, the end goal of nonviolence, where differences are resolved peaceably and reconciliation occurs among adversaries.

To connect the King Holiday to the example Dr. King set and to engage more Americans in honoring him through service, MAS is joining with others in its network to provide tools for the “40 Days of Nonviolence: Building the Beloved Community” initiative, which includes a Pledge of Nonviolence
