Democratic Party of Wisconsin Statement on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
"This week, we'll begin a new era that will likely test the progress we've made towards honoring King's legacy and fulfilling his dream."
“Over the last eight years, we’ve seen a transformative President who embodied the dream Dr. King never was able to see realized. This week, we’ll begin a new era that will likely test the progress we’ve made towards honoring King’s legacy and fulfilling his dream.
“Today, we don’t just honor a great civil rights hero, we also recognize what is at stake for future generations and acknowledge that the fight for equal opportunity and social and economic justice is not over.
“During his farewell address last week, President Obama reminded us that ‘the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion, a constant widening of our founding creed to embrace all and not just some.’
“Each and every day, we must re-commit ourselves to protecting the rights of every American at the ballot box, to eradicating the ills of income equality in the wealthiest nation in the world, and to creating a society where everyone is guaranteed equal treatment under the law.”
