The World House Project

The World House Project seeks to realize Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of the world as a large house in which "we must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.” We combine educating on human rights and nonviolence with building an active global network. Through education and the network, The World House Project provides the world with empowering resources and strategies that engender solidarity among all peoples to realize King’s vision.

2022 STANFORD REUNION: Make the World House Project a Part of Your Homecoming



Educating on human rights and nonviolence is one of the main pillars of The World House Project. Building on the work of the Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, notably the King Papers Project and the Liberation Curriculum, we develop innovative and authoritative educational resources. Our goal is to make these resources freely available to all peoples of the world to illuminate the past, speak to the present, and empower them to build a more just and peaceful future. 

We are a global network of organizations and individuals committed to human rights and nonviolence. The World House Global Network facilitates communication and collaboration among people working on local and global levels for peace and justice. Our goal is to build solidarity and grow the sense of community among all people defending human rights nonviolently and realizing King's vision of peaceful coexistence in the World House.
