The work accomplished in the fight for civil rights justice and equality by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., lifts us all. We owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. King for his endeavors and the sacrifices he made in leading the movement that so many have benefitted from over the decades.
Dr. King showed how political engagement and coalition building help establish positive movements. He gave us the road map on how civil disobedience can highlight injustice in the law. These tools remain the most effective ways to raise your voice when confronting racism and discrimination.
