The 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington
Today, we remember one of the proudest days in our Nation’s history, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. declared his dream for a better America. 50 years later, we renew our commitment to justice, especially in the face of new challenges such as Voter ID laws and the Supreme Court’s decision gutting a key section of the Voting Rights Act. While these developments may test us, with vigilance and perseverance we will overcome these obstacles on the path to justice. We must also redouble our efforts to create jobs and economic opportunity for all Americans. Together, our progress will continue, and we will one day realize Dr. King’s dream in which all Americans have an equal opportunity to pursue the American Dream.
