Realizing Our Own Dream in the "Fierce Urgency of Now"
In 2016, we will commemorate the 53rd Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech. President Barak Obama reminded us that King’s ideas were “words for the ages”: responsibility lies with current generations to continue King’s legacy and heed the “fierce urgency of now.”
A Better Chance, A Better Community invites area students to submit an original written or video essay that draws on their experience to respond to this question:
What is your dream for our future? Write your own “I Have a Dream” speech and explain what actions you will take to help realize that dream.

The program is also meant to encourage other work sites to participate and demonstrate similar physical activity practices for their employees. Work sites may earn recognition by implementing physical activity practices such as:
• Providing walking routes,
• Promoting walking programs, online newsletters, and tracking tools to motivate employees, and
• Allowing staff to wear athletic shoes in the workplace on designated “sneaker days.”
