Much like how Martin Luther King Jr. attempted to harness the energy of the Civil Rights Movement into the Poor People’s Campaign, we must pick up where he left off. We must rise to this occasion of a dual crisis: a global pandemic and economic catastrophe. Injustice does not start and end at one issue, it is an interconnected web that we as a whole are more than capable of dismantling if we are willing to remain united against those who wish for everything to remain stagnant.
Dr. King knew this. We should not forget this lesson.
