MLK@TUS

To honor the vision and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, as well as our own aspirations to build the Beloved Community, we host the annual MLK@TUS event that honors this great human.  A chance to go deeper on racism, as well as to be of service, MLK@TUS has become a community staple.

MLK@TUS REPARATIONS
Please join us for a Community Dialogue: Hear, Watch, and Participate
This is an online only event

Meeting ID: 958 4489 1562

Please join our congregation on April 24, 2022, as we host Jean Pierre Brutus, Senior Counsel, Economic Justice Programs, New Jersey Institute of Social Justice, and the Meta Theater Company. The online event will include lived experiences, performance, and a ​facilitated discussion to understand the topic of racial equity and reparations.

As part of the lead up to the MLK@TUS event on April 24, we would like to invite you and your family to participate in the Racial Equity 5 Day Challenge and learn more to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity related to race. The plan includes a variety of suggestions and materials for adults, teens, and children to read, listen, watch, subscribe to, and ways to take action regarding racial equity. Try to pick a different activity for each of 5 different days.

See the link below for the materials and suggestions:

MLK@TUS Reparations 5 Day Challenge


Below are images from the 2020 event at which the Meta Theatre Company performed an interactive theatrical piece on the myth of a biological basis for race.  Afterwards, we all created nearly 100 bag lunches in partnership with Elijah’s Promise for their guests who are unhoused or experience food insecurity.
