2023 Beloved Community Global Summit

January 12, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EST


Join The King Center for the 2023 Beloved Community Global Summit, as a part of the 2023 King Holiday Observance!

Kairos Director Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis will be speaking on January 12th from 2:30-3:45.

The opening and closing sessions with Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO of The King Center, are hybrid events. Participants may register for a limited number of in-person tickets or join via interactive livestream. The in-person events will take place at The King Center in Atlanta, GA. All sessions will be available via livestream on The King Center’s website, YouTube channel, and social media platforms. Registration, which is free, ensures access to Summit materials and post Summit engagement.

Today, more than ever, there is a need for humanity to work towards creating a more just, humane, equitable, and peaceful world, where the Triple Evils of racism, poverty and militarism cease to exist and love prevails. To create that world, we must first change our minds and ensure that our means align with our ends. Therefore, the charge is to start with ourselves, then connect with others, in “Cultivating a Beloved Community Mindset to Transform Unjust Systems.”

Each interactive session will encompass a relevant conversation, with audience participation, on how we can collaborate (globally, strategically, and compassionately) to facilitate this transformative work. Powerful summit sessions will address:

1) Why a ‘Thought Shift’ is necessary

2) The historical biases behind the mindset that acquiesces to and perpetuates injustice;

3) What we must unlearn and relearn on the path to Beloved Community thinking;

4) The facets of a Beloved Community Mindset and why the facets are critical for us to, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “make of this old world a new world.”

5) How a transformed way of thinking leads to transformed systems, with attention to specific systems

Together, we can harness the power of this strategic convening and collaborative work to bring us closer to creating the Beloved Community – a society where injustice ceases and love prevails.
