Updated: Jan 21, 2020

First of all, Happy MLK Day! Its still not a federal holiday but it will always be worth celebrating his legacy and vision. We can't deny he was a pioneer for our community and still sets the tone. It's hard to say we are out here following the dream because the climate is pretty intense these days within the government and our society, and you never know what's going to happen.
