DPNM Chairwoman Haaland Statement on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

New Mexico – Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Chairwoman Debra Haaland released the following statement in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Day:

“Today we celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments and sacrifices made by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for civil rights and equality for all. We honor the activists that Dr. King led throughout the Civil Rights movement, and the activists that he continues to inspire today. As Dr. King once stated, ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’ This acts as a reminder to stay committed to our cause. We must continue fighting for the Affordable Care Act, criminal justice reform, and a higher minimum wage. Most importantly, we must continue to pursue and defend equal rights for all people. In a time when issues of social justice have come into question, we must remain steadfast in our belief that justice will prevail.”
