Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - Issues of Racial Justice, Criminal Justice, and Human Rights
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. emphasized peace and justice. In recent months, we have seen a crisis emerge in the United States. Join us for a panel discussion honoring Dr. King's legacy of service in the context of racial justice in the U.S. and the international human rights framework and mechanisms. Issues of racial justice, criminal justice, and human rights have emerged in new ways, including through the Black Lives Matter Movement. How can we reconcile Dr. King’s vision of peace and freedom with the violent attack on democracy at the Capitol on January 6th? What tools are available for advocates to use to advance Dr. King’s legacy at the local, state and global levels?
In a conversation moderated by Tatiana Scantlebury, join London Bell, Soffiyah Elijah, and Ruth Hassel-Thompson to discuss criminal justice, human rights, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy.
