Honoring MLK’s legacy: Join the Sacramento Rally

SACRAMENTO — In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated a holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. for his work to end racial injustices that existed in our culture. Modeling his work after Indian leader Mohandas Gandhi, King was able to convince the America public that, “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Tuesday, we will continue that work, as the next generation of human and civil rights leaders rally for justice. Once again, leaders from the Indian communities will partner with Black civil rights leaders and other life-affirming organizations to express their longing for equal justice for everyone, based on the inherent dignity of every human created in the image of God.

Tuesday also marks the 40th anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that imposed abortion on America and led to the death of more than 55 million children. We recognize that the struggle for human dignity begins with the protection of the most vulnerable, that is why we rally for the protection of all human life.

The Jan. 22 rally will begin at noon at the California State Capitol’s West Steps:

West Steps, California State Capitol
10th St and L St, Sacramento, CA, 95814
