Peaceonmoney, Put Dr. King on Money sign now

WE, the undersigned, believe that it is well past time that an African American be honored on money. We, the undersigned, also believe that American society has fallen victim to a pervasive climate of violence. We, the undersigned, believe that honoring Dr. Martin Luther King by putting him on regularly circulated United States currency, will at once, honor the very real and very significant economic, social and political contributions of black Americans- past, present and future while also honoring a man who embodied non-violence and courage. It seems that every other person honored on money has in some way been involved with war. Let us now honor a man involved only with peace.
If some critics say that Dr. King was a religious not a secular figure and therefore should not be commemorated on money, let us remember the unique experience of Black Americans. The Black church WAS the only place that afforded the privilege of confidential and secure assembly to African Americans, a right that most others had by virtue of the First Amendment. So, the Black church was both a religious and POLITICAL institution and Dr. King's leadership in it should in no way disqualify him from being on currency based on any "separation of church and state" considerations.
We implore you, the Director of the United States Mint, to suggest the appropriate legislation or do whatever is necessary to begin the process of honoring Dr. Martin Luther King by putting him on some form of regularly circulated United States currency. Let Dr. King still show us the way. Peaceonmoney.
