Martin Luther King, Jr's rich legacy of seeking justice through non-violence speaks to our values at Move to Amend. 

Martin Luther King Jr.

We can only speculate how our collective destiny may have been altered had King not been assassinated. Would he be railing against the corporate corruption of our country? 

From his April 4, 1967 "Beyond Vietnam" speech:

“When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, militarism and economic exploitation are incapable of being conquered." 


It is hard to imagine that King would not have joined the broad forces opposing the imbalance of power in our government and economic systems. 

It is ironic that on this day in which we celebrate King’s life, we also observe the third anniversary of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision.
