“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
What a great truth spoken by a great man. Years later, Martin Luther King’s words echo with great resonance as we find ourselves in a world swirling with injustice – everything from terrorist attacks, to people not being able to access clean drinking water to millions of people being bought and sold. It all seems too great a burden a bear.
With this month being home to both Martin Luther King Jr. Day and human trafficking awareness month, it’s important to recognize the connection between Mr. King’s work towards justice and the issue of injustice presented by contemporary human trafficking.
