MLK Jr. Events 2023

Columbia Friends Meeting has participated in King at the Dome event for a number of years if not from the beginning.  Several friends participated this year with the Columbia Friends banner.   We feel privileged to have been a part of this event and to have had an opportunity to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. who contributed so much to the peace, harmony, and justice of our country and the world.

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech
