April 4, 2011 was the 43rd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's assassination in Memphis, TN. It was also the day of the We Are One silent vigil and rally at the North Carolina General Assembly in Raleigh.
Participants included the NAACP, HKonJ, the NC Green Party, farm laborers, the LGBTQ community, labor unions and other citizens concerned with social issues and economic justice.
'We' Is the Most Important Word in the Social Justice Vocabulary. The issue is not what we can't do, but what we CAN do when we stand together. With an upsurge in racism/hate crimes, criminalization of young black males, insensitivity to the poor, educational genocide, and the moral/economic cost of a war, we must STAND together now like never before.
