BREAKING THE SILENCE

An Intergenerational call for unity and action.

April 4 is the date Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in 1968 while he was in Memphis, Tennessee to support sanitation workers. Exactly one year before, on April 4, 1967, Dr. King gave one of his most consequential speeches titled, “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”. This speech was the first time he publicly called for an end to the U.S. war in Vietnam and for unity and action to end the triple threats of militarism, racism, and extreme materialism.

The advocacy group STOP AAPI [Asian American Pacific Islander] Hate received some 3,000 reports of assaults against group members between March and December 2020 alone, many of them targeting women and seniors.
