SCLC AAPI Rally
On behalf of the Cobb County Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the partners with whom we work.
I ask that you join us as we bring together members of our community to stand in solidarity with our Brothers and Sisters who are Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Although the recent display of white supremacy is not new, we cannot be complicit by being silent or absent. We plan to show our support on the eve of the 53rd Anniversary of one of the more notable and heinous hate crimes, the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Be that as it is and more than five  decades later, his admonition regarding our obligations to each other is the right path to get all of us to the “beloved community”.
Words from his letter written while incarcerated in the Birmingham jail were prophetic: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Given the current events from which none of us can deny nor escape, the imperative that compels us to turn to each other is more pronounced today than ever. Our individual salvation, in part, is dependent upon what action we take in this dark hour.
The attached flyer provides the information you need to attend. Arrange your schedule to stand with us and feel free to share this event with your staff, family and friends.
