Thank you to those who joined us in making our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration a great success this year! The January 17th celebration this year served as the launch of a local campaign aimed at preserving civil rights in our community. The Preserving Civil Rights Campaign is in direct response to national threats to civil rights including raids on local activist, assault on immigrant rights, and a legacy of racial profiling.
We then held a second meeting to discuss the campaign:
Organizing Meeting: Preserving Our Civil Rights
When: Tuesday, February 8th, 6-7PM
Where: AFSC Office 2 Conz St Suite 2B
All were welcome. We educated people about the campaign, what power we hold, and what steps we can each take to ensure that the civil rights of all members of our community are protected.
