Property is intended to serve life, and no matter how much we surround it with rights and respect, it has no personal being. It is part of the earth man walks on. It is not man.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Everyone at The Palace supports nonviolent pathways to racial and social justice. There are many organizations in this country who are working every day to listen, witness, and act to reduce suffering and bring about social justice. Racism, hate, and cruelty are dividing and destroying our country. We can reverse these divisions by finding ways to learn more and get involved. These are a few of our favorite organizations (on this sad day, and week, of protest and mourning). Look after one another.
