Opening Plenary Session: Dr. Bernice A King

King-sm.jpgCSWE is pleased to announce that the 2023 Annual Program Meeting (APM) will kick off with a plenary session featuring a moderated conversation with Dr. Bernice A. King.

Dr. King is a global thought leader, strategist, solutionist, orator, peace advocate, and CEO of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center For Nonviolent Social Change (The King Center), which was founded by her mother as the official living memorial to the life, work, and legacy of her father. In this position, Bernice continues to advance her parents’ legacy of nonviolent social change through policy, advocacy, research, as well as education and training through the Kingian philosophy of nonviolence, which she re-branded Nonviolence365™ (NV365). Through her work at The King Center, she educates youth and adults around the world about the nonviolent principles and strategies modeled by her parents.
