Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Today in the United States, we remember Martin Luther King, Jr and his work as a civil rights leader. You may know this part of his most famous speech:

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

We encourage the Akimbo community to join us in honoring his legacy.

If you feel the impacts of racial injustice on a regular basis, we hope you can find  some space to breathe and take care of yourself.

If  you’re unfamiliar with or don’t experience the impacts of systemic racism, we hope you’ll reflect on how issues of racial injustice affect your community and how to most effectively use your voice to help make change.

We’ve compiled a list of resources recommended by the Akimbo community:

Self-care practices and healing meditations


We hope one of the resources helps you.

To end, another quote from Dr. King:

"we cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back."

We’re here with you in this work.
