Dr. King Marches for Freedom

Anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr. is another reminder for all men and women, regardless of ethnicity, color of skin, belief and ideology, that freedom is achievable if people seek peaceful coexistence through an all inclusive approach.

Shirazi Foundation sees the  increasing number of activists in humanitarian fields as a signs of both an increase in injustice throughout the world, but also an  increase of people who stand for the rights of each other and seek every peaceful measure to achieve freedom and prosperity for all, as God has created us all equal.

“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

As Martin Luther King Jr. worked with a number of civil rights and religious groups to organize the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, a peaceful political rally designed to shed light on the injustices African Americans continued to face across the country. Held on August 28, 1963; attended by some 200,000 to 300,000 participants.

Shirazi Foundation seeks 30th Anniversary of such important occasion in American and world history to remind all of ,men and women, Human Rights Activists to remember; to-date millions of people are displaced from their homes and away from their motherland, many have lost loved ones they regret not holding within their arms one last time, and many more have lost sons and daughters , our future hopes, in the ongoing effort to achieve freedom ,peace and all inclusive diversity for all.

On behalf of Shirazi Foundation Team, we thank all those who thrive on helping the helpless and being the hope for the hopeless, humanitarian effort is a task that requires all of us for its existence and we would like to share with you a quote from the Qur’an,

And this is your nation – a single nation. and be not not disunited.”
