NATIONAL CHAIR OF THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF BLACK WOMEN SPEAKS AND MARCHES FOR JOBS, JUSTICE AND STATEHOOD FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

October 15, 2011

 

Washington, DC – Dr. E. Faye Williams, National Chair of the National Congress of Black Women was among the  featured speakers for the DC Statehood Rally on Saturday, October 15, 2011 in Washington, DC as people from across the world gathered to dedicate the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  She was also a speaker at the Jobs and Justice Rally sponsored by Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network at the Sylvan Theater on the National Mall.

 

Dr. Williams said, “It is such an honor to be a part of this very special weekend celebration of the dedication of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial.  Participation in the festivities and rallies is great, but what is more important is what we do when we return to our communities to make life better for the masses of our people.

 

Everybody can do something, and it is our duty to act in any small way we can.  What we do could be as simple as voting in every election, getting somebody  else registered to vote who may never have voted before, mentoring a young person, making an effort to wipe out meanness of spirit by being more lovable in whatever we do—and so much more.  Let us use this special occasion when we honor Dr. King’s work to do something different that makes a positive difference”.
