COT: The incrementing reps represent 1963-1968, major years of activism work!!! MLK Day Overview:

King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

How F3 falls into the mix: Pulled some quotes from brothers down in Greensboro presser. FELLOWSHIP!

F3 Greensboro men’s fitness group focused on more than just working out, having hard conversations about racial equality.

When the racial unrest happened this summer, this group of men from all different backgrounds saw an opportunity.

“We believe that started with conversations,” Phillips said. “We’re blessed in F3 Greensboro to look a lot like the community we represent. And we wanted to continue that momentum. So, we started with uncomfortable conversations, earnest and honest.”

“We sit down, and first we listen. Then we educate, understand, and support,” Ambler said. “It’s been life-changing just in a matter of months.”

Observations: Shout out to Shute for modifying where needed but doing the work with 35 lbs and a ruck pack on. Also, another shout out to Bolt for stretching it out and making it happen today after yesterday’s ruck around Burke Lake. Way to get after it HIMs!
