The work to realize the dream shared by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. continues. Those who worked with him and those who learn from his work cross generations and regions across the country.

From California to New Hampshire, from Seattle to Denver, today’s change makers not only commemorate the man and the movement. They also live the legacy through peaceful yet vigorous activism to meet today’s challenges.

Above, find interviews with some of these change makers from Street Spirit, an AFSC publication that reports extensively on homelessness, poverty, economic inequality, welfare issues, human rights issues, and the struggle for social justice.
