Honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Happy 85th Birthday!

Today we celebrate the 85th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birth... January 15, 1929.

During a time when so much of our society's political discourse and organizing is centered around getting recognition and attention - where 'winning' is essentially measured in public opinion polls and traditional and social media airtime, it seems this prophetic sermon by Dr. King is just as relevant today as it has ever been. Our individual and collective work must be aimed at freedom, dignity and justice for all people, especially the elimination of racism, the pathology associated with the deeply ingrained myth of white supremacy and any other form of supremacy by one people over another. The active living of the principles of truth and justice must always guide us!

Happy Birthday Dr. King. Your message has not been lost. We ask that you continue to guide us, strengthen us, and make us wiser along the journey. The road has been long, yet we shall indeed win the long fight for freedom, dignity and justice.
