Tool Kit

The George Washington University honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through a series of programs, presentations, service events, lectures and seminars.  Sixty years after the start of the Montgomery bus boycott, and Fifty two years after King’s “I have a Dream” speech on the Washington mall, people across the nation have inspired the rebirth of a movement around social justice and responsibility.  Their public protests and peaceful demonstrations reflect an ideology that says the world is moved less by the powerful shoves of the mighty, but more so by the thousands of daily nudges of the common man.

Upon reflection of King’s historic call for action, every member of the GW community is encouraged to contribute.  Whether mighty or not, King's legacy should inspire us to get behind this community wide celebration and nudge our institution, and nation forward.  With the support of GW faculty, staff, students, and alumni the MLK Planning Committee developed the KING WEEK TOOL-KIT which provides a number of opportunities, ideas, and inspiration for all of us to “keep moving forward.”
