The Community Coalition for Social Justice (CCSJ) brings together people
from the Morgantown and nearby areas, including religious organizations,
faculty and staff of area schools and the University, labor unions, and
community advocacy organizations to promote social justice in our community.
...Yet, the fierce urgency of now calls us from
despair, urges us claim no more than our share.
Lucent with renewal, we will not ignore the damage
deepening in our land. Dry self-seeking needs love to
moisten us to malleable shape. Hands together,
pushing on the universe’s moral arm, we can help it
bend toward justice.
--Susan Shaw Sailer
Part of a poem written for the Morgantown Seventh Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Celebration, “Hand in Hand, Together We Can”, 2013. Three phrases in the final two
stanzas are drawn from writings and speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.
