This past Sunday, we were invited to share our #MAP16 story in Shreveport, LA [Shreveport Convention Center] to over 5K people!
Not only did we get a chance to share some of our clips, but we challenged people to consider the poor, understand the realities of the poor, and create margin in their personal lives to notice people.
We are excited about starting our editing process this week as we prepare to share our March Against Poverty story with the world.
During this season, take time to notice those who are poor, and consider what really matters.
This past Friday, we got a chance to partner with Woodward Academy to serve hundreds of people for #FeedTheNeed.
Not only did we hang out with families to give them hope for the Holiday, but we had a wonderful surprise to take place.
The Atlanta Hawks came to our headquarters with “Harry the Hawk,” several representatives from the Hawks organization, and Kaiser to present our Executive Director [Terence] with an award [#TrueToAtlantaAward] for the #MAP16 journey.
Additionally, the Hawks got a chance to hang out with the community and encourage them along with us.
Check out a few pictures below!

Yesterday, Johnny Taylor and I (Terence) got a chance to share a small piece of the #MAP16 journey with the public for the first time since we’ve been back from Washington, DC.
Additionally, we got a chance to share our “official” documentary trailer. Would you like to see it? Most of it was shot during the walk!
Hold on to your seats… It’s powerful.
Below are a couple of pictures:
RECAP: Yesterday, over 700 students marched for #MAP16 in Atlanta, GA with Terence to raise awareness about poverty and homelessness among students.
It was an amazing experience to partner with Deerwood Academy to educate students about this important issue in our nation.

Yesterday, Terence and Johnny reached the White House, and a crowd of supporters marched with Terence all the way to the King Memorial where Terence delivered a speech entitled, “It’s Time To Do Something…”
Check out the picture below, and the final stretch video.
This Saturday, I’m going to speak from my heart to whoever comes out!
I’ve walked over 600 miles, have encountered tons of people in poverty, and have a burning desire to humanize their stories.
If you’d like to hear my words in 3 DAYS, follow our @lovebeyondwalls Facebook page where I’ll go live with my words from the MLK Memorial.
FINAL DAYS: This morning, Terence is only four days away from reaching Washington DC on behalf of the poor in this country.
He has looked in the faces of hundreds of people that need hope, love, and a hand up in this country!
May God grant him the physical strength to complete today’s miles, and the last 4 DAYS!
Yesterday, Terence literally saw a sign that said 44 miles until Washington, DC. We are estimating that it will take 4 more days for Terence & Johnny to arrive at the finish line.
Earlier this week, we received our official permit to end at the march/walk at the King Memorial to do a press conference on poverty in the U.S. (in partnership with the SCLC)
If you’d like to meet us there, we’ll see you in Washington in 4 DAYS.
