Good Evening BEARS Families and Friends,

Martin Luther King, Jr. is well known for his famous and inspiring speech “I Have a Dream” where he called for an end to racism. But King was more than just a powerful speaker. He was a man who dedicated his life to fighting for racial, social and economic equality and justice for all people. He believed in peaceful civil disobedience to obtain positive change and ultimately shifted the future of social justice movements. On this day, we encourage you to reflect on and be inspired by his activism.
