“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'”
Dr. King, Jr made the struggle for equality and social justice his life's work, teaching that through nonviolence and service to one another, the greatest of societal injustices and evils can be overcome. Even today, this belief can inspire us to take on the mounting challenges that our state and nation face, economically, socially, and politically.
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
