MLK Week

An annual celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., Salve Regina’s MLK Week examines the history of the civil rights movement and the impact of systemic racism and persistent racial disparities locally and nationally. Through education, dialogue and community engagement and service, MLK Week seeks to advance committed action around the critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy, particularly anti-racism and nonviolence, and further the mercy, Catholic mission of the University.
