Commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Just and Fair Treatment for All
This weekend we honor legendary civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. As Dr. King said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." Learning from the past and teaching inclusion and respect are powerful ways we can combat hate today.

Max Rose (D-NY) and Mark Walker (R-NC). Greenblatt discussed the increase in violent anti-Semitism and domestic extremism across the country and called on members to put more pressure on social media companies to kick neo-Nazis and anti-Semites off their platforms.
