Humboldt Rallies for 'Josiah' on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day events were spearheaded by close to 300 people demanding and marching for David Josiah Lawson, a Humboldt State University student who was killed at an off campus party in 2017. It's been roughly 22 months since the murder and the case is still unsolved. On what would have been Martin Luther King Jr.'s 90th birthday, Humboldt County staged a march from the courthouse to the Adorni Center to advocate for more than 'Josiah'. Issues ranged from troubles with racism, Indigenous land, undocumented immigrants, police brutality, formerly incarcerated peoples, and the importance of voting in rural communities.
