MLK365 August, 2013 Newsletter

Greetings!

 

Thank you to everyone who participated earlier this week in our 5th Annual MLK365 Beer Summit on Race Relations (click here for highlights of news coverage). To view photos from the Beer Summit, click hereA diverse cross section of more than one hundred concerned citizens candidly shared their experiences, concerns, discussed issues of the day and ways of finding common ground.  Our next quarterly conversation on race will take place in October. In the interim, I invite you to share with me and our Global Citizen team any feedback from the Beer Summit and suggestions for future conversations. Please send your comments to me at todd@globalcitizen365.org

 

On July 22 and 23, we partnered with the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington, D.C. for a national town meeting at the National Constitution Center on public service and finding common sense solutions. I was pleased to serve on the panel with a group of national elected officials and community leaders, and honored that the Bipartisan Policy Center recognized our work to promote civic engagement with their inaugural Public Service Award

 

August is a milestone month as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and Dr. King's iconic  I Have a Dream speech. We are partnering with the National Constitution Center as they host a series of public events on Wednesday, August 28.

 

Today, we are hosting our MLK365 Community Leadership Workshop in Camden, New Jersey.
