What is Beloved Community?

What you’ll find on this site is a guide to dive more deeply into creating the Beloved Community.  We’ve divided it into two sections, for those doing this work individually, and for those doing it as a group.

You can dig in further to learn about specific topics as a window into the many ways we can work together to realize the vision of the Beloved Community.

“Dr. King’s Beloved Community is a global vision, in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will e replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood. In the Beloved Community, international disputes will be resolved by peaceful conflict-resolution and reconciliation of adversaries, instead of military power. Love and trust will triumph over fear and hatred. Peace with justice will prevail over war and military conflict.”
