Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that mass mobilization was necessary to combat what he called the three evils of society- Militarism, Racism, and Economic Exploitation. King believed that we must “organize our strength into compelling power so that government cannot elude our demands.”
It is undeniable that Dr. King would have stood with the oppressed communities in Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, and other cities in their fight against institutionalized racism and police murder. He would have stood with the fast food workers and others fighting for a $15 hr minimum wage and a union, like he stood with the sanitation workers of Memphis when he was assassinated. He would also have stood against the bigotry and intolerance expressed against followers of Islam.
Join us as we remember his legacy and continue the effort to build unity and a massive movement that will eliminate these evils in our society today. Remember the real King, join the MLK Day March For Justice!
