Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement observing the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Fifty years ago, our country, and this world, lost a beacon guiding a movement of equality by the north star of justice. 

“Today, we, as generations united for peace, celebrate the humble legacy and noble teachings that Dr. King imparted to us. We celebrate through service for our brothers and sisters who have less than we have. We celebrate by fighting for those whose rights are being infringed upon. We celebrate with resistance to racism in the caves in which it lurks. 

“Today, we not only remember a dream. Today we reaffirm that the dream of Dr. King is the dream of our nation. Dr. King lives on in our fight, he lives on in our struggle, and he lives on in our peace.”
