One Village Alliance presents the 9th Annual Raising Kings Conference, honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As we look at where we are today as a nation, it’s clear that mere social gatherings are not enough. Raising Kings is a year-round, high impact opportunity that kicks off during National Mentoring Month to connect our highest needs youth with positive male mentors, role models and fathers. With your help, we can continue to raise the next generation of King leadership and empower our children to begin living “the Dream”!
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.” Dr. Martin Luther Kings
Dr. King’s legacy commands that we come together as a beloved community and act now! Raising KINGS is a collaborative commitment to change the prominent image and expectations of African American males by elevating the level of positive male engagement in the lives of boys. Our impact continues year-round beginning in January with Raising Kings Week. Join more than 700 men and boys of color for a full schedule of inspiring narratives, thought provoking presentations, and courageous conversations. Our goal is to secure 130 new mentor commitments and grow our capacity to implement evidence-based programming in schools and community sites including Ferris School for Boys. Register for the entire week today!
