On April 4th DJJ gathered with water justice advocates at a reading of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence" speech, commemorating the 49th anniversary of his assassination. The reading took place outside the 36th District Court downtown, where 9 activists have been tied up in a years-long trial for blocking Homrich trucks from shutting off water in 2014.
