Happy Monday to you. While I don’t know what the day holds for you, I trust it will find you connecting with family and friends. I also trust that you will take a moment to say thank you for Dr. King and the ways he lived his faith.

In the linked video Dr. George Cummings, CEO of Faith In Action East Bay, reflects on the spiritual power of Dr. King. Central to the freedom and harmony and prosperity of all implied a critique of the system and engagement with systemic change. That is the kind of work that we do. We engage in long-term organizing in order to bring about equity for all in the land in which we live and love.
