      The Greenlining Institute, Prevention Institute and Community Intelligence: MLK Jr. Day Workshop: MLK, Environmental Justice and Health Equity - Achieving MLK's Dream of Social Justice, Equitable Public and Mental Health and a Healthy Built Environment

      To honor MLK Jr’s dream of racial justice and social equity, the Greenlining Institute, Prevention Institute, Community Intelligence, members of the Greenlining Coalition and members the Healthy, Active, Equitable, Land Use Network are joining forces to present an MLK Jr. Day workshop.  MLK, Jr. became the predominant leader in the Civil Rights Movement to end racial segregation and discrimination in America during the 1950s and 1960s and a leading spokesperson for nonviolent methods of achieving social change. His eloquence as a speaker and his personal charisma, combined with a deeply rooted determination to establish equality among all races despite personal risk won him a world-wide following. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and was selected by Time magazine as its Man of the Year. His “I Have a Dream” speech, which is now considered to be among the great speeches of American history. His success in galvanizing the drive for civil rights, however, made him the target of conservative segregationists who believed firmly in the superiority of the white race and feared social change. He was arrested over 20 times and his home was bombed. Ultimately, he was assassinated on April 4, 1968.  This event honors his legacy and explores the impact of the civil rights movement on public health, mental health and community well-being.
