(Queens, N.Y.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. transformed our country through his non-violent campaign for greater justice and equality for all. Dr. King encouraged us to love one another, to treat all humans with compassion and empathy, and to resist hate and discrimination. These lessons are as important today as when we first learned them decades ago.

“In a moment when hate and discrimination are too commonplace in our nation’s discourse, we must all remember the teachings and legacy of Dr. King.”
