“Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives. “ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
What do social activists like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Grace Lee Boggs mean when they have spoken about “beloved community”? How did they build social movements around this concept? How can the beloved community concept strengthen our domestic and sexual violence prevention work? Join Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance and Training Resource Center (TC-TAT) and co-presenter Cristy Chung, Prevention Consultant and guest panelists to explore where and how this framework is advancing our prevention work.
