King’s Dream, 2014

King’s Dream, 2014

I am writing to share plans for King’s Dream, 2014.   Our signature event will be a Day of Service on January 20, 2014.  Information to sign up can be found at Faculty, staff, and students (as individuals and as groups) can sign up on this webpage.  Service Projects will begin at 12:30pm. We are aiming at having 300 Lasallians join with neighbors and community members in several different service projects, mainly in the immediate area.

That afternoon at 5:00pm, there will be the Third Annual Interfaith Prayer Service honoring the memory of Dr. King. This service invites community neighbors to join La Salle Faculty, Staff and Students to worship and reflect together.  It will be followed by a simple reception.

Wednesday, January 29th, from 6:30pm until 8:45pm, there will be an Emerging Leaders Program. It is designed for students who are joining groups, taking on initial leadership roles, or students at large who would like to further develop their leadership skills. The program will address leadership styles, social justice and King’s Dream, and challenge attendees to make a difference!  Faculty and Staff can alert students to this exciting program by directing them to the website or by sending their names to Pete Lafferty ( Pete will then contact them.

The successful Oratory & Spoken Word Contest will hold its second event on February 7, 2014. While there is detailed information on the webpage the contest will focus on the following quote from Dr. King:

“We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now.  This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.  Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy.”

I Have a Dream, August 28th, 1963, Martin Luther King

This quote is from Dr. King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.  His words inspired masses of people and he became a legendary symbol of hope. Our country has made much progress since Dr. King’s speech, but injustices are far from nonexistent. Fifty years later, we may be bold enough to dream, but are we bold enough to take action?  How do we engage in the democracy that is our right and responsibility as citizens? How do we as Lasallians, men and women imbued with a Spirit of Faith use our faith in the way that we are challenged to by Dr. King: “With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.” (King, August 28th, 1963)  With these questions in mind, students will be asked to write and deliver a five minute speech or spoken word piece that uses Dr. King’s quote as the jumping off point.

Signs, posters and invitations will appear as students begin to return to campus.

Complete information on all of these events can be found at

Everyone is invited to attend some of the events and joining in the Day of Service.  Faculty and staff are also asked to invite students to take part in these activities.

If there are any questions please feel free to contact me.

On Behalf of the King’s Dream Committee, thank you in advance for your support.
