The Kennedy King Memorial Initiative and Pacers Sports & Entertainment have teamed up to launch the Marvelous Potential program, a chance for civic, business, and community leaders to see central Indiana’s challenges through the eyes of those most directly impacted by them. The effort is part of the Beloved Community partnership, a collaboration between the two organizations to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy by confronting issues of social injustice in Indianapolis neighborhoods. “We talk a lot – and rightly so – about the need to listen to the community to better understand how to address the biggest disparities, and Marvelous Potential is meant to remove as many of the filters as possible and link decision-makers directly to those most impacted,” said Darryl Lockett, Executive Director of the Kennedy King Memorial Initiative.
Jordan Clarkson: It hurt me deeply to see that Salt Lake’s @yumyumasian food truck was recently vandalized – I know the pain that hateful language and racism causes. With help from @identitygraphix we’ll be able to restore the truck and hopefully lift Ben and his family’s spirit!! #StopAsianHate pic.twitter.com/HLfzX7AaEc
