Jan 19: March for the Dream this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

March for the DreamAt the end of his life, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. began to focus on the power of a movement made up of those who are dispossessed in the current economic system.

Join us Saturday, January 19th, 2013 to March for the Dream! We will gather to rally at 10am and then march together across river!

The rally will begin at the VOZ Worker Center, march across the river together, visit Right 2 Dream Too, and end the day in Sisters’ Cafe with hot soup and beverages, music, hosted by our Keynote Speaker Mic Crenshaw.

Sisters and our allies continue to grow this movement – led by poor communities and communities of color, those who are the most deeply impacted by the law of maximum profit. This powerful movement for good will ensure that every person has shelter, good food, safety and dignified work. This is the creative and caring force of the “unsettling force” Dr. King referred to.
