Bennet Statement in Honor of Martin Luther King Day

Denver, CO - Today Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement in honor of Martin Luther King Day:

"Today, as we reflect on Martin Luther King's legacy, we remember his dedication, courage, and passionate fight for racial equality and justice. It hasn't been an easy road, but it's a road we must continue to travel together.

"We may sometimes feel like the world has lost its way. But, when it's too difficult to continue on the road and the torch feels too heavy, we must lean on each other for strength.

"Let's honor Dr. King by pushing his dream forward and recommitting ourselves to improving education for everyone, reforming our criminal justice system, and creating a solid pathway to prosperity for all Americans. We are in this together."
