Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
Today, as we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we remain mindful of his legacy of fighting for justice and love for one’s neighbor. Dr. King understood that changing history requires hard work and sacrifice in the face of difficult odds. It is through his persistence and contagious compassion that we are inspired to continue his work into the future.
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Even a superficial look at history reveals that no social advance rolls in on the wheels inevitability…This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.“
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Stride Toward Freedom the Montgomery Story – Chapter XI Where Do We Go From Here
A diverse community such as ours is evidence of Dr. King’s vision. In Greater Houston, we enjoy one of the most diverse communities in the country. Yet, we must continue to fight for this privilege. We must not remain silent about the things that matter to us.
As this campaign continues to fight for what matters to Houstonians, we hope you will join us.
