The World House Project, a Rhode Island initiative, has just launched a website dedicated to promoting Dr. Martin Luther King's World House vision and agenda. The URL for the new website is: www.theworldhouse.org. The World House Project is an effort that has combined the energy and resources of the local chapter of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the RI Committee for Nonviolence Initiatives, and the RI Peace Mission - a coalition of 26 religious and community organizations that advocates for non-military approaches to global security.
The Project has produced educational materials based on Dr. King's Nobel Peace Prize lecture of December 11, 1964, and "The World House" chapter of his final book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? These documents can now be accessed by the public via the internet. Religious congregations and community groups observing the Dr. Martin Luther King holiday and organizations committed to fulfilling Dr. King's "other" dream of a just and peaceful world community are encouraged to make use of these materials.
