… we have provided several short videos about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his sacred work to unite people in the 1960’s.
In one interview he talks about needing a “revolution of values” in order for government leaders and the citizens of this country to find common ground. In many ways, what Dr. King describes then applies to today’s political and societal challenges…more than 50 years later.
You can also view two special videos created by local churches, members of GVIN, that demonstrate the grassroots efforts being made in some of our worship and religious centers to create a welcoming space filled with diversity and acceptance.
The Members & Friends of GVIN are united in an effort to promote human equality on all fronts. We have MUCH in common with one another… more similarities than differences.
