RNC Message Commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and RNC Co-Chairman Sharon Day released the following message on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

Edward B Footmon and Dr. Martin Luther King Civil Rights March on Washington, D.C.

“Today we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and we honor his legacy,” said RNC Chairman Priebus. “He dedicated his life to building a more just society where opportunity is afforded to all. In the face of often brutal opposition, he dared to fight against the injustices of segregation. Through brave actions and stirring words, he called on a nation to live up to its own ideals. We’re a better country thanks to Dr. King, but even as we remember his triumphs, we recognize that the work must continue. We must keep fighting for a country where no one is denied the opportunity to achieve their vision of the American Dream.”

“Today and every day we remember Dr. King and the civil rights leaders who made great sacrifices so that we could live in a better America,” said Co-Chairman Day. “We honor their legacy when we stand against prejudice, hate, and injustice. Let us remain committed to the causes of freedom, faith and equality.”
