KDC Lexington prepares for MLK Freedom March

The Core Team and members met on Friday for a poster party in preparation for the March on Monday which will be the group’s kick-oof to National Week of Action. We made signs with MLK quotes and the message that KDC, United We Dream, and the entire undocumented community in the country wants to send to the President and our legislators: “Not 1 More Family Separated.”

KDC always participates in the MLK March, we find it a perfect opportunity to remember the history of our country and to support our local community. But this year is probably the first year that we are bring our own message more explicitly. In addition to the posters, we will bring along the walk white helium balloons to which we will attach our “dreams” in s mall piece of paper. The balloons will be released at the end of the march symbolizing that Dreamers and their families will release their dreams out to the world, fearlessly.

In preparation for the big day, the team worked hard on their artistic skills.
