After bearing witness on the on going conflict that is currently occurring in the world, one is just overwhelmed by the courage of everyday citizens to stand in opposition to oppression. They demonstrate the courage to speak, to march, to demonstrate, to demand respect and dignity for all. We can ever be so thankful that in this incredible country of ours that our duty is to educate others on what we have accomplished is such as short time in our history. Again MARL has demonstrated the necessary courage to continue questioning how best to keep citizens informed and active by voicing that all rights need to be protected.
A day of FREE and FUN events, Under the Canopy from 12 to 5pm.
