Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

1 min read

Today we celebrate the national holiday designated in the honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Congress designated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to coincide with Dr. King’s birthday. This year celebrates the 37th observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

As we reflect on the life of Dr. King and look for ways to continuing his work to advance social justice, equality, and freedom for all; let us not forget that there is still so much to do. We must remain committed to improving our lives and communities. Today let us strive even more to illustrate Dr. King’s mission and work by transforming communities through service, providing economic justice through inclusion, and ridding hatred through working for equity. By doing so, on this day and every day, we will honor and make Dr. King’s dream of equality a reality for everyone.

“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education, and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”
