Jan 16, 2023: A full meeting today!
“If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand some of these illegal injunctions. Maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.
--Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1968
(excerpts from his final speech before his assassination in April 1968, nearly 55 years ago)
