U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today made the following statement in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, commemorating the life and work of the civil rights pioneer. The day has also been designated by the White House as a national day of service.
"Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. dedicated his life to the service of others. He fought for equality of all people and to make our country a better place. Now, as we honor his memory, people in Michigan and all across America will come together for a national day of service to better our communities. As King's legacy reminds us, we all have a responsibility to help move our neighborhoods and our nation in a positive direction. Hopefully, his memory and this national day of service will inspire dedication to service throughout the year." --U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow
