MEMORABLE SOCIAL JUSTICE QUOTES:
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can trans-form the world.”
― Howard Zinn

“We have to talk about liber-ating minds as well as liberating society.”
—Angela Davis

“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid any-more. We have seen the fu-ture, and the future is ours.”
—Cesar Chavez
