Today, January 16, Americans pause to remember and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., honoring the legacy, achievements, and impact of the late civil rights champion and Nobel Peace Prize winner.
Dr. King said, “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”
We remember Dr. King as a fierce advocate for the betterment of all people, and remember his life’s work fighting for social justice and against discrimination during the civil rights movement. It is a day to reflect and take action on civil rights issues across the globe, as well as the work that still needs to be done for racial equality in our country.
Americans are encouraged to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and recommit to advancing the causes of social justice by serving their neighbors and communities. By working together, we can provide solutions to both our national and local problems, including equal rights for all Americans.
Consider honoring Dr. King’s life, work, and global vision by making a commitment to make a positive difference in the lives of people every day.
