As we reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., let us remember the actions that illuminated #MLK's great courage, resilience, compassion, and service. Let our actions toward inclusion, belonging and care be the way we pay tribute to Dr. King today and everyday.

Let us remember that voting was a central pillar of #MLK's work in the Civil Rights Movement and is a cornerstone of our democracy. The fight for #VotingRights and access to the ballot remains as fraught and critical as ever.

With state legislatures around the country passing voter suppression laws reminiscent of Jim Crow, it’s time for Massachusetts to stand up firmly for racial equity—and for democracy.

We have a responsibility to ensure that those who run houses of corrections honor the rights of people in their custody. Let's pay close attention and make sure that @PlymouthSheriff Joseph McDonald and staff respect detainees’ rights and ensure safety. bostonglobe.com/2022/01/13/o…

More states must act. The current patchwork of abortion access leaves too many people without care. It's more urgent than ever that we protect abortion nationwide. Tell your Senators to support the Women's Health Protection Act NOW. action.aclu.org/send-message…

A recent poll found that 68% of voters want the federal government to stop pursuing contracts with for-profit prison corporations for immigration detention. Immigration detention centers are inhumane. Biden must make good on his promise to close them all. aclu.org/news/civil-libertie…

The Biden Administration's misuse of the Title 42 policy is illegal and cruel. It must end.
One year into the Biden Admin and two years into the pandemic, public health experts are reiterating calls to end Title 42, which "continues to politically exploit the COVID-19 pandemic to expel, block, and return to danger" people seeking protection. bit.ly/press-release-title42

While we welcome crucial effort to create more low-threshold housing, we remain concerned by reports that some people were subjected to having their only shelter and possessions removed without being offered viable alternative options... @CvRose3 @MayorWu boston.com/news/local-news/2…

This change of leadership gives the Biden Administration the opportunity to finally live up to many of its campaign promises — including those to reduce mass incarceration in our federal prison systems. nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fed…

Change in criminal justice system is overdue and new approaches show promise. Not prosecuting low-level crimes was more successful in directing nonviolent offenders away from criminal justice system over 2 decades. Violent crime also dipped last year... bostonglobe.com/2022/01/13/m…

The power of DAs should be used to further racial justice & create healthier communities. Boston & Suffolk County has been a really good pilot...We’re going to see more people stepping up and saying, ‘We are trying something new.’ @CvRose3 on @DARollins aclum.org/en/news/aclu-state…
