On January 19th, 2024, reflecting on the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Team SAAPRI attended the launch of BeloveD13, an initiative aimed at fostering new relationships, tools, and opportunities to actively build the Beloved Community envisioned by Dr. King. This breakfast was the first of many conversations.
During the launch, leaders engaged in discussions about relationship and coalition building across the 13th District’s diverse racial, ethnic, and religious communities. The focus was on sharing individual efforts and exploring collaborative actions to advance the dream of a Beloved Community, aligning with Dr. King’s vision for a more just and harmonious society. Thank you to Cook County Commissioner Josina Morita for the invitation.
