RISING Above

cropped-obr-white-background1.jpg

An individual has not started living until he can RISE above the narrow confines
of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a person dedicated to equal rights and justice for all women and men, and someone who has inspired countless activists worldwide.

As we near our own RISING on 14 February, we are reminded through Dr. King’s words and legacy of the power that each one of us holds within us to create change. We encourage you all to remember this as you plan your rising in your community, and know that you are connected not just to a billion sisters and brothers around the world today, but the billions more who have come before us.
