Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s contribution to equal rights for all Americans remains unmatched.

In the years since Dr. King's untimely death, our state and our country have moved closer to the dream of equality envisioned by Dr. King. However, there is still much work to do in the ongoing struggle for social, racial, and economic justice.

Each year, the Legislature honors Dr. King's birthday with a resolution. Eighty six years after his birth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday will be observed on Monday, January 16th.

Today, I want to encourage each of you to keep Dr. King's dream alive by performing an act of service. Help your neighbors by volunteering to make our community stronger. This is the legacy that I believe Dr. King would ask of us in his memory.

I welcome you to join me at the following volunteer opportunities and upcoming events to celebrate MLK Day in our area:
