CELEBRATING DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Posted on January 21, 2021

Tomorrow our nation celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Please take a moment to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy which inspires us to keep fighting and organizing. 

The link below is to the awards ceremony from this weekend’s AFL-CIO 2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Conference. In this video you will hear the stories of inspiring activists, powerful Black voices and women who changed the world.
