The Civic Knowledge Project, part of the Office of Civic Engagement, is partnering with the RainbowPUSH Coalition, Liberty Baptist Church and other community partners to launch a major initiative to commemorate the work of Dr. King on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of his tragic assassination. This initiative will involve a wide range of educational programs and activist opportunities designed to showcase and critically assess the ongoing importance of King's philosophy of nonviolence. The Initiative will launch with an on campus Open House/Public Forum on Nov. 4th., at which members of the UChicago community will learn how they can get involved. Both volunteer and paid internship opportunities are available (see http://pathfinder.uchicago.edu/ )Please join us at the CKP Office, in the Edelstone Bldg., 6030 S. Ellis, room 133, starting at 11 am.
