MLK

The Martin Luther King Teach-In is an opportunity for members of Catholic University to learn about, and advocate for, justice as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did during his life. Join us as we honor the legacy of Dr. King throughout the week. There will be speakers, service activities, prizes, and more!

Dr. King tells us, "The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy."

Week of Events: More coming soon!
