Individual Gratitude,
Communal Responsibility

Today is the 26th annual MLK Day of Service. Dr. King’s moral leadership continues to resonate today on topics of racial justice and poverty. His legacy of action and learning, organizing and advocacy, and love for humankind lives on through contemporary activists in the Movement for Black Lives and beyond. This year and every year, we honor him through learning and action.

Can we hold together both the idea of daily gratitude for being alive, as well as the idea that we are not truly alive if we are not expressing a deep concern for the welfare of others? 

To explore this question further, see the activity guide below.

We are grateful to Repair the World, a partner organization, for creating this activity.
