“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” The late Martin Luther King Jr. wrote these words in his letter from a Birmingham jail back in 1963. Now in 2018, these words have never rang truer.
Within the first week of the new year, we have seen that the Trump administration is wasting no time in continuing their onslaught of hate. This means that we must not waste any time in fighting back against any injustice coming from them. Please join us at two important upcoming events this month us as we, along with many other communities in our city, resist against hate.
- On Monday, January 15th our Executive Director, Erika Almiron, will be one of the speakers during “A People’s Call to Action Rally and Teach-Ins“ organized by our friends at POWER.
- The event will take place at Dobbins Technical High School at 2150 W Lehigh Ave at 1:00 pm.
- On Saturday, January 20th Juntos Community Leader Olivia Ponce, will be speaking during the “2018 Women’s March On Philadelphia.” The march will take place at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway here in Philadelphia starting at 10:30 am.
We hope you are able to join us during these two incredible events as we remember and honor the legacy of those who have come before us and march towards a brighter future together.
