Dr King Remembered


The life and legacy of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr was remembered in many communities on the 40th anniversary of his assassination.

In northern New Jersey, the People's Organization for Progress has long been consistently keeping the legacy alive through community activism and service.

The People's Organization for Progress placed a token of grateful remembrance at the statue of Dr King in Jersey City.








Editor's Note:

With the possible exception of such others on the domestic "front lines" as school teachers and public safety (police, fire and emergency medical) personnel, our mayors are in the best position to really see "what's going on" in our communities.
It would do us all well to at least listen to and consider what they say.

Athletic Event Held
In Memory of
Officer Shawn Carson

The Third Annual P.O. Shawn Carson Memorial 55-Meter Dash for public servants was held at the New Balance Track & Field Center in New York, New York, on Saturday, March 29th during the New York Road Runners Club Youth Jamboree Track Meet. The sponsors were World’s Fastest Human’s, Jon Dummond Achievement Foundation, New York Armory Foundation, New York Road Runner Club, Gladiator Track Club of Hudson County and Coogan’s Restaurant.

If interested in participating in future similar events please contact the Coordinator, Jesse G. Jackson at

The story about the tragic death of Officer Shawn Carson and his partner, Officer Robert Nguyen, who were members of the Jersey City Police Department. Both died in the line of duty on Christmas night 2005. The officers were responding to a call by bridge operators concerning a problem with the bridge signals. After placing flares on the bridge roadway, and not being aware the bridge was open, they drove their emergency service vehicle over the fog-shrouded drawbridge where the vehicle plunged into the Hackensack River below. Both officers died in the crash.

Officer Carson was well known for his coaching and volunteer work with the Gladiators Track Club of Hudson County. Club President Jesse Jackson praised Carson's abilities as a coach, spirited athlete, and frequent volunteer.

Shawn Carson will be missed by all of us in the running community, please remember him and Officer Nguyen and their families in your prayers.

and the basic causes that produce it,
they'll create their own program,

you get action."
