Working Families Celebrate the Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

January 22, 2017 Kenneth Quinnell

This weekend, the AFL-CIO hosted the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Civil and Human Rights Awards Luncheon and Community Service Weekend. This year’s theme, “The Struggle Is Free, but the Dream Must Be Televised,” represents the constant battle for civil rights and justice that continues to plague our country. While the results of the election unveiled the sobering similarities with the civil rights movement, we still dream of the world Dr. King so eloquently described in his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. The labor movement will remain steadfast in our fight for civil, human and women’s rights, and to make justice a reality for everyone. We are the drum majors for justice, and together we will honor the everyday heroes who are working tirelessly to improve jobs and achieve justice.
