“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly”
Rev Martin Luther King Jnr (1963)

MLK Global launched in 2018 to mark the 50 anniversary of Reverend Dr Martin Luther King’s assassination. His ‘last great exertion’ in 1967/68 was the Poor People’s Campaign and – often overlooked and forgotten – an Economic Bill of Rights.
MLK Global calls for a renewed ‘internationalising’ of Dr. King’s vision. In particular, for global civil society to unite around his ever-more relevant demand for an end to the inter-connected ‘triple evils’ of economic exploitation, racism and militarism.
MLK Global believes that Dr. King’s analysis of the underlying structures that reinforce inequality speaks to peoples across the global north & south who share a deep desire for long-overdue change.
MLK Global wants to see a renewed awareness of his 5-point Economic Bill of Rights, re-envisioned for today. Economic inequalities, racism, militarism & climate change are destroying families, communities, nations and the very planet we live on.
The time to fulfil Dr. King’s vision of a “radical redistribution of power” is now.
