More than a dream
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King firmly believed in and advocated for equal rights among all races. He gained significant recognition during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, while delivering his notable "I Have A Dream Speech”. Dr. King believed that love was a stronger force than hatred and made it his mission to spread the power of love and acceptance. King inspired hope within those around him that one day people of any race could join hands as one.

Martin Luther King Jr. believed in using nonviolent practices to create peace within the community and was one of the first civil-rights activists in the 1960's that orchestrated nonviolent protests. He arranged boycotts, sit-ins, and marches to safely and effectively improve the quality of life for African Americans in the United States.

Let us remember Martin Luther King Jr. for the vision he worked towards, and come together to love and respect each other regardless of our differences. To learn more or get involved with Columbus’ MLK Day of Service, click here
