Building Beloved Community through Nonviolence


In 2019 MLK Center staff set out on a journey to grow a culture of nonviolence in our organization and community.  Allison Luthe, Executive Director and Charity Malone, Community Builder completed the training at the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta. 

We believe that Dr King's vision for a Beloved Community is possible.  We will achieve that through growing and living a culture of nonviolence.

Racism and Violence have taken a toll on our community.  While many of us are thriving, some of our neighbors are struggling.  That means we must all do better.  At MLK Center, we are on a mission to build Dr King’s vision for a Beloved Community right here in Indianapolis. It will take each one of us and everyone is welcome.  Join us by enrolling in our Nonviolence Training - a fifteen hour training that will increase your knowledge, expand your perspective, and help you take action to build the Beloved Community with us.

“This training provides a rich opportunity to explore the multidimensional nature of violence, the historical context of Dr. King’s nonviolent approach to change, and the application of nonviolence principles today as our country wrestles with profound challenges like racism, unjust wages, environmental destruction and more. Rather than just dissecting problems we face, the workshop presents a methodology for pursuing change, which leaves one feeling encouraged and inspired.”
