NJEA on Instagram

  • As we reflect on the life, legacy and service of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today, let us remember: the best way to honor our past is to dedicate ourselves to a better future. #MLK #GoodTrouble #NecessaryTrouble
  • This past weekend at our annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Human and Civil Rights Celebration, NJEA President Marie Blistan shared these powerful words of Congressman John Lewis on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy: "Dr. King insists that we must be optimistic that we must be hopeful, and we must be part of the change we seek. We cannot give up. We cannot get lost in the sea of despair. He was hopeful. He was always moving towards the future. He would tell us to stand out, speak up, speak out. Find a way to get in the way, find a way to get in trouble - good trouble, necessary trouble." #MLK
