Faith + Works: Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, with Robert Fullilove, EdD

January 29, 2023 4:00PM

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at the end of his life, was working to create The Poor People’s Campaign, an effort to create a movement that would embrace all those in our nation seeking to combat economic inequality, not just for Black people, but for everyone. Faith in action for

those who would heed his call meant acting, not just talking or thinking, about remaking the nation’s economic structures. In the face of planetary threats to our climate and our very existence, how do Dr King’s words and deeds provide us with a plan of action for our future?

Dr. Fullilove’s talk will be live at Faith + Works First Unitarian Universalist Church of Essex County 35 Cleveland St, Orange, NJ 07050 and virtually on Zoom. Please register on Eventbrite here.
