Week Three: “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
This past weekend, two huge events coincided- the annual Women's March (the third to occur since the inauguration of the 45th President) and a rally/march to honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reminding us all of how relevant his words are today.
In Powergirldance this week, we talked about the significance and importance of showing up, whether it's attending a protest or taking a moment to honor and reflect on the reasons we need to fight for justice and equality, now more than ever. Protests and rallies get us fired up, collectively connect and inspire us all as well as call forth the accountability of our lawmakers (and ourselves) to be better people. These events insist that we be seen and teach our children the power of actively being engaged in democracy, social justice and compassion.
