Three hundred people gathered for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Breakfast Saturday morning in Lansing.

They talked about "Faith in Action" at the Union Missionary Baptist Church and tackled topics like immigration reform, housing, education, and healthcare.

Speaker Ana Garcia-Ashley said seeing so many people there gave her hope.

"Anytime you put 300 people from all different faiths and different nationalities and different income levels in one room--hope is in that room."

Garcia-Ashley also said the crisis in Flint is on everyone's mind, and urged people to get involved.
