Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is particularly special this year because it falls on Dr. King’s actual birthday, January 15th. This national holiday celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. King who led a nonviolent civil rights movement in the mid-1900’s to gain legal equality for African Americans.
The theme established by The King Center for the 2024 King Holiday Observance is, “Shifting the Cultural Climate through the Study and Practice of Kingian Nonviolence.” Dr. King’s pioneering work demonstrated that nonviolence is the sustainable solution to injustice and violence in our world and ultimately leads to the creation of the Beloved Community, where injustice ceases, and love prevails.
Dr. King dedicated his life to speaking out against injustice, inequality, poverty, and war. As a majority African American-owned firm, IEI aims to honor Dr. King’s influential legacy by contributing to the creation of equity and equality for all people through the development of essential infrastructure in the communities where we work.
Because MLK Jr. dared to dream, we can now all be dreamers of a better world.
