sunday supper

 
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and            convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. 
— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

On Sunday, January 14, we'll convene 200 corporate and community leaders at the Center for Civil and Human Rights for an engaging evening of conversation and performances. We will center the event around Dr. King's Poor People's Campaign, which called for a radical distribution of political and economic power.

There were 3 driving forces of the Poor People's Campaign that are still very relevant today:

  1. A war on poverty
  2. Guaranteed annual wage
  3. Construction of low-cost housing  
 
 

The Signature Sunday Supper will be live streamed via Facebook. Watch last year's event:


LIVE HIS DREAM

day of service

 
Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Monday, January 15, in partnership with the King Center, we will mobilize 1,500 volunteers at 25 projects throughout metro Atlanta to unite in service.  

2017 was another racially and politically polarizing year. From the tragic events in Charlottesville, to the #takeaknee protests, racial and social injustice is at the forefront of conversations every day.

To overcome these social challenges, we believe by uniting in service, we can live Dr. King's dream of peace and equality.

 
 

We will have a diverse range of projects to participate in this year including school and park beautification, meal kit packing and working in homeless shelters, putting together literacy and calming kits, planting trees, spending time with seniors, and more!  

A full list of projects coming soon!
