“Today, we take time to honor the life and spirit of one of America’s most influential and important civil leaders. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will forever be remembered and revered for his pivotal role in our nation’s civil rights movement.

“Dr. King’s message of love, justice, freedom and fairness bettered the course of American history and continues to inspire us today.


“As we reflect on the courage and commitment of Dr. King, may we always strive to embody those values and advance his righteous dream. And, as this is also a national day of service, I ask Arizonans to honor Dr. King by committing ourselves to serving our communities in our work, our relationships, and our volunteerism.”
