Freedom & Justice

Day of Freedom:
In the Footsteps of MLK

How might we connect between MLK day and the hostage situation in Gaza?

The 100th day in captivity almost exactly coincides with MLK day. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us important lessons about freedom and fighting for justice, which can inform our actions today and raise awareness about freeing the hostages. How can we learn from MLK to use our words to bring a voice to our movement? Who might be our allies? What can we do EVERY day?
