MLK Drum Major for Justice Competition

NMBLA asks you to encourage any current high school juniors or seniors to compete in the Drum Major for Justice Competition. This competition includes both an essay and oral advocacy component and requires students to present their thoughts on what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would think about an emerging legal issue.

If Dr King were alive today, would he support the call to defund police departments across the Nation as a reform to police brutality? If so, explain why? If not, explain why?

Check our Scholarships page for the essay details and requirements.
