Udall Statement in Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Today, we remember this great man, who dedicated his life to justice, and who famously asked, in his words and in his deeds, ‘what are you doing for others?’ It is fitting that Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday also observed as a day of service. At a time of great turbulence and fear in American society, Dr. King offered a moral vision of what our nation could be. He didn’t just fight injustice, he sought redemption, and he did so with great compassion and understanding.
