MARCH FOR THE DREAM: BUILDING THE UNSETTLING FORCE

Martin Luther King, Jr.: "There are millions of 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." 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.
