The National Advisory Board advocates for the rights of older adults and people with disablities to live healthy, independent lives at home.
At Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr delivered his speech "What Is Your Life's Blueprint?" This intimate conversation about sound planning, determining purpose and belief in personal dignity, personal excellence, and self-worth underscores all of Dr. King’s work for justice and inclusion. We must not let anyone else define our beauty or identity and work to create a world in which all people have the opportunity to know self-love and respect.
