Drum Major Institute
Founded in 1961 by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Harry Wachtel, his lawyer and counselor during the civil rights movement, the Drum Major Institute carries Dr. King’s work and vision of radical nonviolence into the 21st century, democratizing it for all people. DMI leads through collaboration by convening leaders and organizations to identify common sense solutions to our most pressing problems. DMI strives to inspire people to embrace their role in the King legacy, to empower them to build the beloved community and take action to promote peace, justice and equity for all.
