2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy. Their witness for peace rather than war, and for prosperity rather than poverty continues to reverberate today. Rev. Rich Peacock will lead us to consider the historic calls to conscience from both RFK and MLK that inform our strategies for overcoming the "giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism," as MLK said. Let us remember and honor these two leaders on the 50th anniversary of their deaths.
