MLK Day

Domestic Impact of War Speech Nov. 1967 speech

King told labor leaders “Military adventures must  stultify domestic progress to insure the certainty of military success. This is the reason the poor …have a double stake in peace and international harmony.”

1967 Dec. statement by MLK

King announced the Poor People’s Campaign would stay in Washington “until some definite and positive action is taken to provide jobs and income for the poor.”

GSO-MLKDay

Making kits for distribution to Haiti.  Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2010.

Thanks for making our MLK Volunteer Day for Haiti a huge success!

On January 18th, AFSC's Greensboro office held a volunteer day to make disaster relief kits for Haiti.  Thanks to the enormous turnout we had, it was a huge success!  We were covered by many news outlets, some of which are linked below.

We made nearly twice as many kits as we expected for Haiti -- final count is 97 -- and also produced over 70 kits for local use.  We think this is a great way to demonstrate the way that issues of poverty and economic justice cross borders, and affect us here in the Triad.
