Statement on The King Center's Meeting with Metro Atlanta Activists and Religious Leaders

7/19/2016

In the spirit of Dr. King and in an effort to continue to build the Beloved Community with Nonviolence365™, The King Center convened a meeting tonight with a diverse group of metro Atlanta activists and religious leaders. 

Tonight's meeting was in keeping with the Center's commitment to connecting leaders and organizations around common goals that lift humanity; and with aiding people in establishing methods, rooted in Dr. King's nonviolent philosophy (Nonviolence365™), which ensure equity and justice in marginalized communities, including numerous predominantly Black communities.

This meeting was also consistent with the Center's focus on strengthening the relationship between law enforcement and community; and on decreasing instances of police brutality. These efforts have previously included providing Nonviolence365™ education and training for metro Atlanta law enforcement leaders. 

The work continues. As our founder, Mrs. Coretta Scott King, stated, "Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won; you earn it and win it in every generation."
