In 1967 MLK delivered a prophetic speech. I want you to help commemorate the 50th anniversary.

Moral principles should provide a foundation to the choice of what to actually do

Our Better Future is organizing three events commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967 speech “Beyond Vietnam – A Time To Break Silence” delivered in NYC exactly one year before his assassination. (Links to read and hear the speech can be found in the final section.) The National Council of Elders has encouraged people to create events commemorating the speech – gatherings of local people to hear the speech and spend time together. Our Better Future has taken up the challenge for Northern Westchester and is organizing three separate events for May 21st, 2017 – one in Peekskill, one in Katonah / Bedford, and one in Ossining.

These events are just one manifestation of multiple OBF projects intended to find new ways to work together for transformation in Northern Westchester.
