Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Every year we observe Martin Luther King Day to reflect on the work that still needs to be done for racial equality. The CFT has been reflecting and speaking out on the racial injustice, healthcare disparity and economic inequity that has permeated this country almost every day since 2020. America is in full crisis mode, but we must follow in the footsteps of Dr. King and recommit ourselves to the fight against white supremacy, right-wing extremist and wealth inequality.
