Wednesday, January 26 at 8:00am to 8:45am
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned “the Beloved Community” based on justice, friendship, equal opportunity and human dignity. Through volunteering and service we can build more equitable and just communities to underpin racial equity, expand civic opportunities, and foster respect for individual differences.
For over 35 years, non-profits, businesses and community members have gathered on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to honor his life, legacy and continue on the path toward justice he paved. To mark this year’s National Day of Service, Habitat for Humanity will host +You: Building the Beloved Community through inclusive volunteering. This virtual event will explore the impact service and volunteerism can have in uniting communities and responding to society’s most urgent challenges. The conversation will emphasize the importance of engaging young leaders to address systemic inequities to build a better future and create the Beloved Community of Dr. King’s dream.
Participants will include:
*Jacqueline Innocent, Senior Vice President Integrated Programs, Habitat for Humanity
*Michael D. Smith, CEO, AmeriCorps
*Kirby Page, volunteer, Habitat for Humanity
This conversation is part of an ongoing series about housing hosted by Habitat for Humanity. The +You series brings together experts from across the U.S. and around the world to discuss how housing intersects and interacts with other areas of societal concern including public health, racial equity, faith and the economy.
