Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and the Movement in 2020
Updated On: Jan 21, 2020

Martin Luther King Jr. Day, is a time to reflect on the meaning and message of his life and the mutually supporting relationship between civil and labor rights in building a just and fair society for the benefit of all.

He worked tirelessly for the rights of public sector workers, including on his final campaign in 1968 in Memphis TN, in which he stood in solidarity with striking African American sanitation workers, who were members of a local union. 

Dr. King did not stand alone; indeed he was a leader in a movement in which every activist was called “Leader.”  These lessons remain just as true now as they did then; civil and labor rights are essential for social justice and unions are essential for good and fair governance.  The lessons that Dr. King and others in the movement taught: we all have a right to be treated with dignity and fairness and we all have a responsibility to be leaders and act for the common good

In solidarity,  
Jeffrey S. Wheeler
President
