Florida Democratic Party Statement Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day

FLORIDA– Today on MLK Day, Mayor Manny Diaz, Chair of the Florida Democratic Party released the following statement:

“Now, more than ever, it is essential to reflect on the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and honor him with action. At a time when our country is deeply polarized and there is a deadly pandemic that has exacerbated inequality, it is abundantly clear that his work toward racial and economic justice, which are inextricably linked, is far from over.

“Dr. King once said, “everyone can be great because everyone can serve.” We must all come together to reclaim the Dream, celebrate his legacy, and commit to work every day to build a more perfect union.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
