Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issued the following statement commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Today we honor the legacy of one of the world’s greatest humanitarians, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His life’s work of combatting injustice and inequality inspired people around the globe to better develop our moral conscience and gave us the courage needed to stand up for what is right through nonviolent means.
“On this Day of Service, we must not only recommit ourselves to Dr. King’s mission of forging a more perfect union. We must stand together and use every ounce of our strength and fortitude to ensure that the moral arc of the universe does indeed bend toward justice.”
