About DMI

The Drum Major Institute advances the core mission of our founder, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to assure that the arc of the moral universe continues to bend toward justice. Dr. King’s legacy and voice are as important today as they were upon our founding 60 years ago. To meet this historic moment, we are lending our unique ability to facilitate dialogue and collaboration to support the countless courageous acts of individuals and organizations across the nation and the world to ensure that the vital conversations that are now starting will sustain and advance far beyond this moment in time – and lead to tangible lasting outcomes.

The Drum Major Institute leads through collaboration by convening leaders and organizations to identify peaceful solutions to the triple evils of racism, poverty and violence. We leverage the King legacy to amplify the good work being done by organizations around the world. We encourage all people to embrace their role in the King legacy, take action in their community and strive to build the Beloved Community.
