The Institute launched The Dream Campaign for the anniversary of Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech. Dr. King challenged us to respond to the Urgency of Now! The Institute is committed to whatever we can for our multicultural youth who are facing an uncertain future in today’s virtual reality of education. As the new school year begins, we want to give them a little hope – and encourage them to dream and work towards a better future.

For the launch, we featured U.S. Congressman John Lewis narrated by Walter Cronkite at The Institute’s event on Martha’s Vineyard.

Each week we feature:

  • Story of the Week
  • Inspiring Quotes
  • Hero Reports Videos
  • Youth Dream Videos
  • Honor Roll’s Call to Action: spotlighting their organization
