At the end of his life, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. began to focus on the power of a movement made up of those who are dispossessed in the current economic system. This movement will be led by poor communities and communities of color, those who are the most deeply impacted by the law of maximum profit. This power for good will ensure that every person has shelter, good food, safety and dignified work. This is the creative and caring force of the “unsettling force” Dr. King referred to.
Come march with us for the abundance that is in this world to be used by those who created it– come March for the Dream.
