Today we reflect on the life and lasting legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A fighter for racial, economic and social justice, Dr. King lived his life in pursuit of a more just world. He believed organized labor was a key driver of economic and racial equity and worked throughout his life – until the very end – to bridge the labor and civil rights movements together.
We are proud to honor, celebrate and continue to pursue Dr. King’s vision today and every day.
