It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the United States. This day remembers the life and sacrifice of Dr. King. His message of racial equality and non-violence changed the landscape of America.
While there is still a long way to go, there was progress made as a direct result of his actions. You can watch Dr. King’s iconic ‘I Have a Dream’ speech here.
Dr. King once said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” In honor of Dr. King’s life, today our Spotlight on Youth celebrates Olivia Stinson who started PEN (Peers Engaged & Networking) Pals Book Club.
After attending her church’s Christmas celebration for children and youth of incarcerated parents, she decided she wanted to do something more. PEN Pals Book Club provides peer mentoring and connections for youth with incarcerated parents and other teens. They also provide educational workshops and literature.
