Radical Love: A Virtual King Day of Service and Symposium

“No, violence is not the way. Hate is not the way. Bitterness is not the way. We must stand up with love in our hearts, with a lack of bitterness and yet a determination to protest courageously for justice and freedom in this land.”

On Monday, January 18 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, Abington Friends School will host a Virtual Event—Radical Love: King Day of Service & Social Justice Symposium. For many years we have brought the community together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and this year we are continuing that tradition, virtually, during a critical time in our world. Please join us!

Register today! The day will begin with an opening program at 9 a.m., followed by various symposium sessions exploring social justice. Zoom links will be emailed to registrants on Sunday, January 17. The Upper School Community Service Council also has also coordinated a selection of options for service in honor of the MLK holiday.
