It is our Vision that "little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers..."
That one day the United States of America will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
It is our Mission to ensure equality and justice for all citizens of The United States of America. "...And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro Spiritual, 'Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!' "
"And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped
Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
