MADISON, Wis. — The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Program Director Analiese Eicher on the celebration of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday:
“Commemorating the extraordinary life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the wisdom of his words and the legacy of his unceasing work for racial and social justice is not just inspirational but more necessary than ever.
“Dr. King spoke of the arc of the moral universe bending toward justice.
“We see events in our state, our country and our world showing us that the journey towards justice is not smooth or steady, but that our efforts to help that arc bend are necessary and worthwhile.”
