MLK Weekend

What a weekend!

Life came full circle again on Saturday morning at the 30th annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast hosted by the Pueblo Gardens Neighborhood Association. I have been at Pueblo Gardens Elementary weekly for literacy tutoring with each of these beautiful Morales kids! This year I was lucky enough to attend the breakfast with the student council and so many other beautiful people.

Then on Monday, my family and I continued our tradition.

Each holiday, since 1998, our MLK sign has meant something different. His quote on my marching sign has some years resonated as anti war, some years for criminal justice reform. But this year, the message rang loud and clear. 30 years before I made my sign, Dr. King spoke with striking sanitation workers in Memphis the night before his assassination: “We’ve got to see it through.” There is no doubt in my mind that were he with us today, he would have visited and prayed with us at the Asarco strike line for the 2000 families suffering without work.

One day longer, one day stronger.

Our grassroots campaign to bring real criminal justice reform is full steam ahead! Reminder that our Launch Party is February 6th at Brother Johns BBQ at 1801 N Stone Ave.

Sano y Salvo. Juntos. Let’s go.

Your friend,
