BE LOVE Merchandise
Be Love is a growing movement of courageous acts to achieve justice. “BE LOVE,” is a campaign birthed amid all the uncertainty, polarization, and global tension over the past year to help society answer three critical questions facing humanity: (1) Who must we be; (2) What must we do; and (3) What are we to accomplish?
Our love-inspired campaign is grounded in the iconic words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from his notable and inspirational writing Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community. In the writing, Dr. King professes that, “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.”
Finally, BE LOVE will also be working to implement national policies and practices aimed at eradicating hate, violence, and the long-standing, oppressive systems thwarting the progress of creating The Beloved Community.
To take the pledge, see our Be Love page here.
Strength To Love
"If there is one book Martin Luther King, Jr. has written that people consistently tell me has changed their lives, it is Strength to Love." Coretta Scott King
Letter From a Birmingham Jail
Written on April 16, 1963, in response to a statement from eight Alabama clergymen which criticized him and the Birmingham nonviolent campaign for desegregation, dignity and equal rights, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail is a powerful, prolific writing that is both applicable for justice work and inspiring for social and personal change. In the Letter, Dr. King provides a love-centered, yet truthful and bold, response to disapproval of and opposition to justice. And within its contents are explanations for direct action and for the expediency of true peace, which includes justice, that translate into wisdom for embracing nonviolence today.
