Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – January 15, 2018

On Monday, January 15th we are commemorating and celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We honor Dr. King for his leadership, vision, and strength.  Let Dr. King’s message of justice and brotherhood continue to inspire us as we remember the ideals he held and the life he lived.

“History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them.”
