On the 91st anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth on January 15, we reflect on his life’s pursuit of liberty, justice, equality for all and service to others.

At the invitation of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME, DC 37’s national union), Dr. King traveled to support Black sanitation workers who were striking for fair wages, safe working conditions and the right to belong to a union.
