Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will forever hold a place in the hearts of millions of people around the world. While his messages focused on the immediate need for freedom from racism, discrimination and brutality toward African Americans, Dr. King also used his platform to shed light on global poverty, and the need for nations to come together to combat this epidemic. In Dr. King’s Nobel Peace Prize address in 1964 he says, “There is nothing new about poverty. What is new, however, is that we have the resources to get rid of it.” On this Day of Service, we ask for your help.
