"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."

We encourage all members of UCSF to consider engaging in the following community hosted events and resources to build and expand your awareness, knowledge, and practice in sustaining the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and all those that worked in solidarity with each other to pave the path of equity and justice.
