UFCW Calls for a Better America on MLK Day
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, UFCW International President Marc Perrone issued a statement that called on our leaders to honor Dr. King’s legacy by building a better nation for all Americans.
The statement reads as follows:
“This is a particularly important time to reflect on Dr. King’s pursuit of inclusivity and allow it to inspire our enthusiasm for the same ideals. He showed that change for the better and compassion for others starts with all of us. When we stand up for our values and become actively involved in positive action, we can build a better nation and a better life for the many, not just the few.”
“It would be a fitting tribute to Dr. King and his legacy in 2018 if our country and those who lead us could begin moving beyond divisions, and towards an America that is defined by justice, dignity, and respect.”
