Welcome to the Martin Luther King Peace Keepers Initiative. The King Holiday was established to commemorate the life and contributions of a twentieth century prophet who helped to transform the legacy of racial oppression in America and the world into a bright vision of democracy and universal peace. Since the unfortunate death of Dr. King in 1968, a permissive culture of senseless and random violence has entrenched itself in America and particularly in black and communities of color. The verdict of history and progressive leadership from all quarters has decided that this sordid record of misplaced aggression and gratuitous violence is intolerable and unacceptable. Today, more than ever, the call to action resonates in the voice we can still hear through technology, but whose voice rings in the hearts of individuals still seeking justice on America's soil.

A DAY ON, NOT A DAY OFF: A DAY OF SERVICE
WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING PEACEKEEPERS
Each year, we, the members of the MLK PeaceKeepers Initiative, celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with "a day on, not a day off" series of events, which are committed to service to others. Our next service day is January 18, 2016, but the peacekeepers will participate in a series of workshops and events that starts with the International Day of Peace with Think Peace International and My Brother's Keeper, an initiative to empower young black males. In addition, we support the initiatives that seek Justice for all, including supporting restoring ALL of the Voter's Rights Act, and ending poverty, racism, and other forms of oppression. Contact Mr. Omowale Luthuli-Allen if your group or organization is planning activites that pursue and support justice issues.
