March Against Poverty ’18

In the remembrance of the 50th anniversary of Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, Love Beyond Walls is partnering with the Center for Civil and Human Rights to launch March Against Poverty 2018.

On March 3rd, Terence Lester and friends will walk and march 386 miles from the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta to the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where Dr. King was assassinated. It will end on April 4th.

The march will honor King’s legacy and life and bring together people from all walks of life and nationalities to engage in a national conversation on racial division and systemic poverty.
