Every year in January, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is celebrated for his commitment to a unified society that celebrates equality and peace. The white dove is a universal symbol of peace, love and harmony. Pay tribute to Dr. King's message of peace by creating a colorful collage of this symbol. "AdvoKids” is a monthly series focusing on children learning what it means to be an advocate for themselves … and others. Adults will learn how they can support their child’s self-advocacy efforts, which promote confidence, resilience and empathy.
