Acting In Common

In 1979, the United Nations General Assembly declared fourth week in March the “Week of Solidarity with the Peoples Struggling against Racism and Racial Discrimination”. In light of the heinous acts of violence that have taken place in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado, voter suppression efforts across the United States, and more, it is becoming clearer than ever that solidarity is essential to justice. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says, “All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” Solidarity is, at its very essence, acting in common for the good of all.
