Social Justice Park

The Washington Gladden Social Justice Park—the first of its kind in the nation—serves as “an oasis of hope where past achievements for social justice are recognized and current struggles are revealed.”

The sculpture featured in the park was born out of inspirational words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a letter penned during a 1963 imprisonment in Birmingham, Alabama, “All [people] are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Today we reflect on these words and Dr. King’s teachings.
