DemocracyNow.org - Ahead of the Monday holiday celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr., we speak with two people key to establishing the day as a paid state holiday in New Hampshire — the last state to do so — replacing its optional Civil Rights Day in 1999. "I look at Mitt Romney talking about saving the soul of America and recall that the model of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference was to redeem the soul of America," says Arnie Alpert, the New Hampshire program coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee since 1981, and activist with Occupy New Hampshire. "What we have to look forward to on Martin Luther King Day, is to reconnect ourself with values that tie together a message of peace, a message of social justice, a message of standing up forever against racism and linking together with the social movements that take courageous non-violent action."
