LaFayette was National Program Administrator for Martin Luther King, Jr., and a co-founder of the Student Nonviolence Coordinating Committee. He has dedicated his life to carrying out King’s final instructions to him on the evening before King’s assassination to “institutionalize and internationalize nonviolence.”

The “Kingian Nonviolence, Border Justice & Immigrant Rights” panel will include representatives of indigenous peoples, youth activism, faith- and community-based organizations, and educational institutions. The panel presentation will be followed by dialogue circles, involving all participants, to focus on border justice, immigrant rights and Kingian Nonviolence.
