Dr. Martin Luther King

Last week we spent a lot of time discussing Dr. King’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail as well as his ideas about negative and positive peace. During our discussion we brainstormed ways to support people when we see injustice happening before our eyes.

Remember that negative peace would be to simply ignore the problem in order to avoid unpleasant confrontations, while positive peace requires us to act to work toward justice.

Attached here is a handout of things you can do specifically when you see a person being harassed, as well as a video that highlights the important points.
