The Unfinished Work; Ending Segregation, Expanding Opportunity.

Monday, January 15, 2024 - 5-6:30 PM. Fountain Baptist Church, Summit, NJ. 

Please join us for a Martin Luther King Day observance and policy forum on school segregation on Monday, January 15, 2024, from 5:00 to 6:30 PM, ET at Fountain Baptist Church, Summit, NJ.

In October of 2023, a New Jersey Supreme Court Judge ruled that New Jersey's public schools were unconstitutionally segregated by race. This ruling has far reaching implications for students and families from all backgrounds, colors and communities. On January 15th, Martin Luther King Day, 2024 we will hear a report on this case from the lead attorney with analysis from experts and reaction and a proposed action agenda from faith leaders. 

Our faith based coalition has been battling the deeply entrenched and well-funded forces of racial segregation across the state for some time. We intend to expand and escalate our campaign in 2024 as we build multi-racial support to win over policy makers through mobilization and direct action.

We can think of no better use of the King Day observance than to launch this important work in the new year and we would be honored if you would join us. 

"Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children."
Martin Luther King, Jr. : I Have a Dream Speech (1963)
