Description

Headshot of Martin Luther KingPlease join the Cambridge Peace Commission as we publicly remember and celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Central Square, Cambridge:

* 12:00 to 1:45 PM: Celebration of Dr. King's Life and Work for Peace, Justice, and Transformation • inside St. Peter's Episcopal Church • 838 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge
* 2:00 to 2:45 PM: Informal Lunch and Gathering at the Church • In the undercroft (basement) at St. Peter's

In 1967, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. described the most serious threat to American society. In his words, "We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." More than 45 years later, the United States still faces these three existential challenges to our values as a nation.

The City of Cambridge will honor and remember Dr. King and his legacy of peace and justice as we gather at St. Peter's Episcopal Church to hear Dr. King’s words calling for peace, justice and transformation, as well as remarks from Rev. Larry Kim, a member of the Cambridge Peace Commission and the senior pastor of the Cambridge Community Fellowship Church in Central Square. Please join us, and add your presence and voice to efforts in Cambridge for peace and justice in the world – and right here in Cambridge.

In addition to the Peace Commission’s Commemoration and Remembrance at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, once again Many Helping Hands will sponsor volunteer activities for its Day of Service from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at City Hall, the Senior Center, and other sites.
