Changing society’s prominent image, expectations and outcomes for men & boys of Color. This powerful conference series launches on MLK Day.
One Village Alliance presents the 9th Annual Raising Kings Conference, honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As we look at where we are today as a nation, it’s clear that mere social gatherings are not enough. Raising Kings is a year-round, high impact initiative that kicks off during National Mentoring Month. The goal is to increase exposure and strengthen relationships between boys, mentors, role models and fathers. With your help, we can continue to raise the next generation of King leaders and empower our children to start living “the Dream”!
