CSA Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day
This weekend, as we honor the memory and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., let us once again renew our commitment to his dream of equal opportunity for all Americans. May we draw inspiration from his leadership, vision, and ideals, not only during this commemorative holiday, but each and every day.
Let us also take the opportunity to reflect on the critical role that the labor movement must play in the fight for justice. Dr. King was assassinated while defending the rights of striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He believed that workers’ rights are civil rights and that strong unions are essential in the struggle for a fair and equitable economy. May we find motivation in his words and deeds as we stand in solidarity with all those fighting for equal opportunity and protections in the workplace.
Most importantly, let us remind ourselves of the critical role our schools play in the continuing fight for equality and equity. As educational leaders, we are called to build on Dr. King’s legacy and accomplishments. May we find the necessary strength and faith to continue his work in our communities and to live and lead by his example.
