MLK’s Weapon of Choice – For Combating Extremism

Dear Friends:

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. And one week from today, people across all faiths, in over 100 countries, will pause to honor his life. That is one of his many extraordinary legacies.

King’s vision, strategic wisdom, and resilience continue to inspire us.

That’s why, for this month’s installment of our Combating Extremism campaign, we highlight King’s use of nonviolence to exact political change. Motivated by his deeply held beliefs, King’s life and actions remind us that religion can be a rich motivator for good. But it is up to us to make it so.

Read on to learn more about the practical ways King manifested his philosophy of nonviolence—a weapon of choice we can still use today:

In honor,

Joyce S. Dubensky
