We at Garden State Equality ask you to take a moment to remember the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mrs. Coretta Scott King, both of blessed memory. They were among the most extraordinary people in the history of our nation. Their leadership provided an eternal template of courage, compassion and effectiveness for social progress, and laid the groundwork for countless other civil rights movements, including that for LGBTI equality. Let us all honor their memory today.
“We shall overcome because the arc of a moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1968.
"I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people (and all LGBTI people), and I should stick to the issue of racial justice. But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, (including) by marriage." Mrs. Coretta Scott King, 2004.
