We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co workers with God,… MLK Letter from Birmingham Jail
Grace and Race Ministries, Inc. and Kingdom Mission Society continue to commemorate the life and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through our MLK Bridges Initiative and Covenant of Action by engaging houses of worships, faith-based and other civic organizations to work together as bridge builders for racial understanding and action.
“What can I do?” is a frequently asked question when it comes to issues related to race in our communities. Throughout 2019, we will identify good answers to that question, as well as provide and promote opportunities to add your voice and to be engaged with people of faith in supporting the legacy of Dr. King. We recognize there are many organizations striving to advance his dream. These efforts are often isolated and do not receive the attention they deserve. We will seek to create a supportive regional network of allies and friends committed to enhancing racial understanding and moving toward Dr. King’s dream of the beloved community.
We invite you to become a founding supporter with MLK 50 Bridges in recognition of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
MLK 50 Bridges is a collaborative effort to:
- Break the silence around racism
- Build bridges of understanding
- Share information and promote relevant community activities
- Provide an online platform for discussions around race and highlight resources in the spirit and legacy of Dr. King
- Provide education and training to help expand the knowledge and skills need to disrupt and dismantle racism in our communities.
Let’s work together to break the silence on racism.
