ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The City of Albuquerque is starting the first day of 30 Days of Nonviolence which commemorates the principles and philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For 30 days, community members and allies will commit to practicing nonviolence as a lifestyle by applying the teachings of Dr. King to realistic scenarios.
