Teach your children about Dr. Kings message of peace, and equal opportunity for all Americans. It still resonates with us, and children can learn from it. Check out library books about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and share personal stories with your children about civil rights in America. HandsOn San Diego is looking for volunteers to work in the Point Loma Native Plants Garden and Solana Center's Food Cycle Program in Encinitas.
