Please join us for the annual

Furman University

MLK Community Breakfast

Featuring Senator Kim Jackson ‘06
District 41, Georgia State Senate

 

Please join us virtually for Furman University's annual MLK Community Breakfast honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year's event will be held virtually and is open to Furman alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of the University.

This year's featured speaker is Kim Jackson ‘06. Kim Jackson serves as Senator for Georgia State Senate District 41, representing portions of Dekalb and Gwinnett counties. Kim works every day to build a safer, fairer, and more prosperous Georgia, and bring the diverse voices of her district to the Capitol: immigrants, refugees, and people living on the margins.

An Episcopal priest from the rural South, Kim made Georgia home over a decade ago. After graduating from Furman University, Kim volunteered as an EMT and led her colleagues at Emory's Candler School of Theology to advocate for Criminal Justice Reform in Georgia. Upon receiving her Master of Divinity, Kim commenced her vocation as an Episcopal priest. Over the past 10 years of ministry, she has served as a college chaplain, a nationally renowned consultant and preacher, and a parish priest. As the Vicar of the Church of the Common Ground, Kim co-creates Church with people who are experiencing homelessness in downtown Atlanta.

She and her spouse live on a small urban farm in Stone Mountain with goats, ducks, honeybees, and chickens.

 

Space for this event is limited. Please register in advance.

This year's virtual event is sponsored by Furman University and the Alpha Phi Alpha Greenville Foundation, Inc.
