Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Network

Create a network of people who organize local MLK day school programs, rallies, etc. – there must be thousands of them! But no one has ever created a network of these organic local organizers. Support them with curriculum and multi-media, develop them as organizers, and make MLK Day – our one national holiday dedicated to social justice – into a springboard for local action.

Status: Mostly just an idea. When I was at Rebuld the Dream, we created a last minute pilot version of this idea with a video and DIY curriculum Рabout 100 local groups self organized get-togethers. I could help someone build on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eD_joYaasM
