March for the Dream: Building the Unsettling Force
Saturday Jan 19, 2013 10:00am-2:00pm in Portland
"There are millions of poor people in this country who have very little, or even nothing to lose. If they can be helped to take action together, they will do so with a freedom and a power that will be a new and unsettling force in our complacent national life." -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

Unnecessary austerity cuts and the systematic dismantling of the safety net/social contract threaten all that we stand for. Join our community at Sisters Of The Road as we march for a better future, one for all people.

For a flyer to print and share, visit Sisters' What's Happening page here:

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.
