1/17/23 The Fierce Urgency of Now
January 17, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Read this article from our Executive Director, Jonathan Palmer, about the importance of acknowledging the addiction of racism, the soft bigotry of complacency, and the need for an intervention of consciousness.
“We have also come to his hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.”
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have A Dream” Aug. 28, 1963
