Dear friends of the Sunday Evening Club,
A few moments ago, I listened to former President Bill Clinton begin his speech at the Democratic National Convention.
Among the several stories he told about meeting and courting Hillary Clinton, he mentioned a pivotal moment. He talked about the trip she took to downtown Chicago to hear a speech by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Bill said that this event helped to awaken Hillary to the importance of social justice. It was a moment that helped to shape her life, and her political career.
I am proud that it was the Chicago Sunday Evening Club that invited Reverend King to speak that night.
I am even more proud that we offered Dr. King our stage and our support not once, not twice, but a total of six times.
For more than a hundred years, the Sunday Evening Club has been creating moments like this. We have helped to kindle faith, and we have invited that faith into positive civic action.
And for more than a century, we have been able to do this work because of your prayers, and because of your support.
My sincerest regards,
