In honor of MLK weekend, the theme for this year’s Alpha Omega Retreat is The Beloved Community, which Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned as a society grounded in justice, equality, equity, inclusiveness, and empathy. How can we extend our ethics and beliefs into tangible forms of resilience, resistance, and social change? In what ways can we collectively work together to create a more just and equitable society for everyone? Come to the Retreat to learn more and invite your friends!
