MLK Day:  A Social Justice Conversation for Youth

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is next Monday, January 18, 2021. MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service. It is “a day on, not a day off.” It is a day to remember MLK’s unflinching legacy of civil rights and human dignity and to work to improve your community and the communities of those less fortunate.

For now, please enjoy this free resource to introduce your students to a thoughtful conversation about social justice and their place within it.

A Social Justice Conversation for Youth is a Theology Together resource and meant to be used in the context of the Wow Theological Reflection Method. Click here for a detailed explanation of the method, or click here for a short summary and an invitation into the Theology Together community.
