Castro Statement Commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day
“Today we celebrate the memory of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a man who worked tirelessly to fight so Americans could have a better future and achieve equality. Dr. King spent his life inspiring our nation to reject hatred and bigotry in our society, something that is more important than ever today.
Dr. King’s legacy inspires us all to continue to advocate for a more just United States of America. As we mark fifty years since his assassination, we are reminded that all Americans, no matter race or where they are from, should have an opportunity to reach their full potential.”
