Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and for those who have an extended weekend due to Martin Luther King, Jr. day.—have a wonderful day off school/work. We want to thank Dr. King for all of the work that he did for the civil rights movement, and for inspiring us to achieve what activism should be.
Below are some awesome blog posts and news stories that we’ve read from the past week.
