Dr. King had a vision for our nation–that all men and women are created equal–and it can be achieved only by the individual and collective courage of all of us together. I hope that each of you will take the opportunity to unite around the fundamental values that all Americans share. Let us continue to work to ensure that our laws, our actions, and our words honor the rights and dignity of every human being.

This is a time for extraordinary leaders with vision and the wisdom to focus on achieving our common goals. Help make Dr. King’s Dream a reality as we work to end racism and injustice through nonviolence and through community leadership.”
