MLK & Network of Mutuality

Our Network of Mutuality

As we begin a historic week in which we will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and begin the Biden-Harris chapter of American history, I’d like to invite our community of hope to pause and reflect on the recent assault on our democracy. As frightening and disturbing as the attack on our capital was and continues to be, I’d like to offer what I hope is a helpful balm to our current national crisis: Each of us play a role in creating communities that support and lift each other up from despair. Your voice and your presence matters, always. Please continue to show up in whatever way you can for those you love, for those you help, and for those that matter in your life.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963

With Gratitude,
