Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Strategy & Philosophy for Sustaining Social Movements

Dr. Bernard Lafayette Jr., who was the director of the Poor People’s Campaign and a friend of the King family, made a promise to Coretta Scott King: to institutionalize and to protect the integrity of her husband’s philosophy.

The Positive Peace Warriors Network (PPWN) was created to continue to work to fulfill that promise, and to continue the legacy of Kingian training. PPWN will introduce us to Kingian philosophy and strategy on movement-building within and without for long-term sustainable change. Join Kazu Haga, founding board member of Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ), and PPWN for a special condensed introduction to the PPWN training. The Occupy movement has been the most important movement towards revolutionary change in a generation.

How can we use Kingian philosophy to sustain our movement in the long-term? Join Forum in the Park to find out.
