We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us as we welcome concerned citizens, students, business and community leaders, faith leaders, elected officials, members of law enforcement, and the justice system.
Love is creative and redemptive. Love builds up and unites; hate tears down and destroys. The aftermath of the ‘fight with fire’ method which you suggest is bitterness and chaos, the aftermath of the love method is reconciliation and creation of the beloved community. Physical force can repress, restrain, coerce, destroy, but it cannot create and organize anything permanent; only love can do that. Yes, love—which means understanding, creative, redemptive goodwill, even for one’s enemies—is the solution to the race problem.
—Martin Luther King, Jr., 1957
