Commemorates
 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We Must Keep His Dream Alive!
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." - MLK

Encompass honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Civil Rights Leader, Baptist Minister, and American Visionary. As we witness our country at its turning point, Dr. King’s legacy has never been more meaningful. A winner of The Nobel Peace Prize (1964), a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, Dr. King worked peacefully and courageously to set the important framework for racial equality in America.

As we reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy and how his work lives on today, we must continue to move in the direction of truth and justice even in the face of deep division.

With 34 new anti-democratic voting restrictions taking effect in at least 19 states this year ---many targeting BIPOC communities for disenfranchisement--- we must do everything to safeguard our democracy and the right to vote.

By honoring Dr. King’s legacy we can build people-powered grassroots support to demand legislation that will realize the promise of democracy for all of us no matter our race, zip code, or income so that we all have an equal say in the decisions that shape our daily lives and futures.

"The time is always right to do what is right." May we join together in solidarity on this day of remembrance and celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” - MLK

All of us at Encompass, our artists, staff members, and our Board of Trustees,

We wish you peace, well-being, and love!
