Community For Unity, Hate Has No Home Here, and the Central Jersey Community Coalition invite you to join us on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech as we promote UNITY in our community, and in all communities of conscience. Speakers will include local elected officials, religious leaders, and community members. We Have a Dream ---that all human beings, of all colors, ethnicities, genders, gender identities, nationalities, abilities, races, sexual orientations, religions, and economic backgrounds are treated EQUALLY under the law and are accepted as EQUAL in the hearts and minds of citizens here and everywhere. We Have a Dream ---that within our lifetimes, rallies will not need to be held in order to promote the ideas of compassion, conscience, and connectedness. We Have a Dream ---that all of us actively and vociferously reject the scourge of racism, anti-Semitism, and bigotry whenever and wherever we witness it. Furthermore, we commit to confronting white supremacy in our communities, institutions, and personal lives. This is our dream, and this is the reality we must work together to create.   ***This event is a non-partisan, non-denominational rally to encourage unity in our community and denounce white supremacy, anti-Semitism, bigotry and discrimination.*** Visit us at: facebook.com/communityforunitynj/ or email: kristen.communityunity@gmail.com
