The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) joins the nation and all peace- loving people around the world in observing and celebrating the living legacy of Dr. M. L. King Jr., a human rights hero, a legend and a civil rights leader whose vision and determination helped transform the United States and inspired human- rights activists worldwide. In this occasion, we affirm that together, we keep the DREAM alive.
Monday, January 16, 2017 is Martin Luther King Jr’s day, a day of remembrance and a day of action to advance our struggle for human rights for all. This year we observe MLK’s day amidst a world that is filled with wars, conflict, injustices, torture, oppression, occupation, despair, divisions and wars. It comes at a time when all believers in human rights to continue the struggle to transform the vision and dream of MLK into a lived reality for everyone. AHR-USA calls upon all to observe King’s day through words, public service, and acts of good will.
“Dr. King is a hero to every advocate of human rights. King’s words continue to inspire us to make the world a better place for us and for future generations” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “Dr. King’s message of freedom, racial equality and justice is of universal appeal. It is as relevant and important today as it was when he started his struggle” continued Hamad
