Event Description

The Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute at Stanford University will sponsor a major international conference on July 16-17. The conference sessions will bring together insightful experts and social activists of all ages to share ideas about how to build a broadly conceived effort to achieve global peace with social justice in a sustainable environment. On Friday, July 16, introductory session will take place in the morning, and during the afternoon Tavis Smiley will moderate a panel discussion that will be broadcast nationally. Saturday workshops will be held for K-12 teachers and for participants interested in continued collaboration following the conference.
Among the invited speakers are Mary King of University for Peace, headquartered in Costa Rica; innovative educator Kiran Sethi, founder of Riverside School in India; Michael Nagler, founder of the Metta Center for Nonviolence Education in Berkeley; King advisor and Veterans of Hope director Vincent Harding; Dorothy Cotton, former director of SCLC's citizenship education program; Eric Mann, director of the Strategy Center in Los Angeles; King Institute Scholar in Residence Clarence Jones; and Clayborne Carson, founder of the King Institute. All sessions will be open to the public, but, if space is limited, preference will be given to those on the RSVP Guest List. A major goal of the conference will be to create an enduring global network of dedicated, nonviolent social-change agents.

Hello Clay,
I will encourage colleagues to attend. "Where do we go from Here?" Dr. King's essays have sustained me since I found them in a used bookstore the summer of my freshman year 1978. Prophetic and brilliant in its grasp of what we need to have true justice.
