A dream is a series of thoughts, images or emotions occurring during sleep. In life a dream is a goal people hope to one day attain. Like Martin Luther King Jr., many people dream of peace, equality and love. Like DACA Dreamers who want to be regarded as the Americans they are.

From Jan. 11-26, San Antonio locals have a chance to express their dreams by participating in DreamWeek. According to, DreamWeek is a 16-day summit of events that allow individuals to exchange ideas on issues to further the advancement of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings of tolerance, equality and diversity.

The DreamWeek conference is an open forum where real world issues will be discussed in a respectful manner.

In today’s climate, a summit like this is important because it allows people to express their views and lets their voices be heard. People from different cultural, social and political backgrounds may feel as though they aren’t being heard; therefore, they remain quiet, and when those people finally are able to speak out, they may feel like nobody cares or nothing will change.

DreamWeek gives a person a chance to discuss how to make the world a better place. For example, one of the events at DreamWeek is “When women lead, the world works for all.”

This specific session will discuss how women’s leadership can make the world a better place for everyone.
