Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress

    Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who nwillingly accepts the penalty of improsinment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law

    Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe
