On January 7, the NFL announced six new national social justice grant recipients as part of Inspire change – including the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta for its work to carry on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy in advocating for social change.
The King Center will use the funding to support its Nonviolence365® campaign which focuses on decreasing the prison population, reducing prison sentences, altering drug sentencing policy, policing reform, reducing, overcriminalization, and juvenile justice reform. Funding will also support the organization’s Students with King program designed for Pre-K-12 curriculum to inspire student to commit to nonviolence as a lifestyle through lessons on self-esteem, diversity, critical thinking and reflection.
On Monday (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), the King Center hosted a Beloved Community Talk entitled “Let’s Bridge the Racial Divide” featuring Players Coalition co-founder Anquan Boldin (NFL Legend, 3x Pro Bowler and Super Bowl Champion) and Takeo Spikes (NFL Legend and 2x Pro Bowler). Anquan and Takeo discussed the work and commitment of the NFL and players to causes dedicated to eradicating injustice and community building.
