2015 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards

October 30, 2014

To the Metropolitan Atlanta Community:

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday gives us a chance to pause and reflect on the principles of social justice as the foundation for community empowerment, diversity, non-violence, and peacemaking. Achieving Dr. King's call for social harmony and equity demands the heartfelt dedication of individuals and organizations with visions for the future.

On behalf of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Committee for the Rollins School of Public Health and the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, it is our pleasure to solicit your participation in our annual celebration. Specifically, we are asking you to nominate individuals, schools, educational programs, community organizations, agencies, and businesses that are able to see the many injustices and inequities that define the world we live in, and are willing to act to correct these imbalances. Self-nominations are accepted. Previous honorees are not eligible to win a second award, though past nominees that did not receive an award are eligible.

The MLK Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 4-6 p.m. in the auditorium of the Goizueta Business School on the campus of Emory University.

We invite you to view the award criteria and/or submit your nomination. We will acknowledge receipt of all nominations.

Nominations are due by Monday, December 1, 2014.

Please contact Angela Thomas at (404) 727-7697 if you have any questions.
