HANDS OF HOPE PROJECT
MLK Week, January 24-29

The Hands of Hope Project encourages all IC community members to start thinking about how YOU plan to affect change on local and global levels.  Paper hands will be available during MLK Week so that these commitments can be written down and displayed as part of a campus-wide art project.  Look for these Hands of Hope stations in the Campus Center during MLK Week and at each MLK Week event (listed below) -- and start thinking about how you want to address the fierce urgency of now in the new year!

This year's MLK Week theme is "Addressing the Fierce Urgency of Now," derived from a speech by Dr. King entitled Beyond Vietnam—A time to Break Silence, delivered April 4, 1967.
