Last week, over 100 volunteers, including Golden State Warriors associate coach Mike Brown, gathered on 36th Avenue and Lawton Street in the Sunset District. They were there to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and launch the Norcal MLK Foundation’s new Service and Sustainability Program. Together, they planted 52 trees along the busy Sunset Boulevard corridor.
“I think for King, his idea of justice was not just about marching, but also about the well being of human society, and that includes the environment,” Aaron Grizzell, executive director of the Norcal MLK Foundation, told me. “The fabric of our infrastructure needs to be wholesome and nurturing.”
