Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson's Statement in Recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

"Today, we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King fervently fought for unity and equality during his lifetime, and paved the way for future generations to live in a country of hope and prosperity. His dream inspired many people around the world, and his courageous fight against injustices transcends generations.

Although we have overcome many obstacles as a Nation, now is the time to identify what more can be done to ensure civil rights for all mankind. Today is an opportunity to engage in our civic responsibility, and together we can make a difference domestically and internationally.

Dr. King gave his life securing civil rights for all, and we must remain vigilant in the process of achieving his dream. It is my hope that we all will reflect on Dr. King's message and continue to serve our country now and in the future. I encourage my constituents to reflect on Dr. King's legacy, and to work to improve their communities throughout the year."
