Children’s Council Reflects on Martin Luther King Day
“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.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
At Children’s Council of San Francisco, we believe that child care is a basic human right.
With Martin Luther King Day approaching, it seems an appropriate time to not only remember this great leader who paved the way for generations of civil rights advocates, but to reflect on our own values and to recommit ourselves to our community’s children.
Every day, we work to support the growth and well-being of all San Francisco families, because we believe that when parents and children have the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential, the future of our city is brighter.
We work with local and state leaders on issues related to early childhood education, and through our chapter of Parent Voices, we organize and participate in local and state rallies and legislative hearings, letting our voices be heard and advocating on behalf of our city’s most vulnerable families.
On this special weekend, we hope you’ll take a few moments to reflect not only Dr. King’s inspirational legacy, but also on your own personal values. As part of the Children’s Council community, we invite you to join us in the critical work of fighting for our city’s families.
And we encourage you to teach the next generation about Dr. King. It’s never too soon to introduce your little ones to the ideals of the civil rights movement and to talk about the man who made such an impact for change.
