NNS to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day Virtually

Published December 16, 2020

Newport News Shipbuilding’s Engagement, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) Council will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the release of a video on Friday, Jan. 15, instead of a traditional in-person celebration.

The celebration is themed “Together Strong – Life Unites.” In the words of King, “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”

The Diversity and Inclusion Office will provide a link to the video for every shipbuilder via MyNNS and the NNS to Go app. Shipbuilders can also participate in a virtual event from 4:30 until 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, titled “Together Strong – Life Unites, unpacking fear, relationships and communication.” Look for more information about how to sign up for the virtual event in upcoming editions of Currents.
