Speakers, musicians and liturgical dance will connect the dots from King’s life and times to present challenges. Tri-Valley CAREs will provide an update on Livermore Lab’s nuclear weapons activities in the era of Trump. Following the program will be a procession to the gates with peace, justice and nuclear-related “stations of the cross” along the route - and a nonviolent direct action at the gates.

"A Time to Break Silence: Public Reading of Martin Luther King’s “Beyond Vietnam” Speech

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s groundbreaking speech “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence”. In it, Dr. King confronted the inter-connections and deep roots of racism, militarism and materialism in the U.S. Fifty years later Dr. King’s analysis, including holding the U.S. government accountable as a purveyor of violence, and his public call to action are as relevant as they were then.

Science March on Washington

According to organizers: “The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter…” Several of Tri-Valley CAREs members and friends will be present in DC. We support real science that supports life, and not new nuclear weapons masquerading as “science”. Local and regional Marches for Science are popping up across the country and the world. Stay tuned. And, drop us a line to let us know if you are going!

Location: Washington, DC
