Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Last year I compiled a few great MLK quotes, and I found that re-reading them today helped rile me up for the week ahead, the next four years, and beyond.
The fact that this guy, of all people, is going to be our next president is still difficult for me to digest. I plan on spending the next few days thinking about what I can do in the future – what we can all do – to fight for a more just and compassionate community, country, and world.
For the next week or so all of my posts will be related to the presidential inauguration and incoming administration. Tomorrow I’m sharing more about why this president and his cronies and fans scare me, followed by a resistance inspired reading list, online resources for getting involved and making a difference, and quotes from great activists and leaders that will hopefully empower you to stand in opposition to those who wish to oppress and control. This Friday I will be attending an anti-Inauguration rally, and on Saturday I’ll be at the Los Angeles Women’s March. The Women’s March on Washington (which is open to all) includes over 380 sister marches (and counting) across the world! That’s right, the world. I’m planning on taking photos at the LA Women’s March and will be posting those on Catch-all as well.
So check back in throughout the week and please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below, as well as any relevant online resources.
