Yolanda Renee King


Public Speaker | Activist

Even though I am too young to vote, I am not too young to get involved.

Yolanda King, age 15, is the only grandchild of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. She has passionately addressed mass gatherings in protests against gun violence, homelessness and inhumane treatment of refugees seeking asylum on the U.S. southern border. She also cares deeply about environmental injustice and protecting our planet. When she met with President Obama in the oval office at the tender age of 4, Yolanda Renee asked him, “Mr. President, what are you going to do about all of these guns?” Yolanda Renee has chosen to become a life-long human rights activist in her own right, while leaving open options for pursuing her own career and interests. As an inspiration to other young people, Yolanda often gets asked what it feels like to follow in her grandparents' and parents' footsteps, but she is working to create her own footprint.
