This year the BQW had the privilege to “adopt” Mme Emily Greif’s 👩🏻‍🏫 5th grade French ⚜️ class at @SWSatgoding @dcpublicschools, through the @EmbassyAdoption Program.

Here's the thing: this is a big opportunity for America and for the White House to embrace from a diplomatic standpoint. 1/
Context: one of the top stories about America that our embassies tell is about Martin Luther King. And they don't just tell the "I have a Dream" part. They tell the Selma and Memphis parts too. This is a critical message for our country. 2/
Because MLK protested against his government. He fought to change his government. That is the American story: Standing up against your government. There is almost no other part of the world you can do that without fear of losing everything. 3/
