Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is remembered for many things: his commitment to non-violence, to civil rights and civil liberties, to economic justice, against racism, for African-American equality and for his support of workers fighting to organize unions.

Others remember him as a man of peace who spoke out against the Vietnam War and said, “A true revolution of values will lay hands on the world order and say of war: ‘This way of settling differences is not just.’”

Although delivered in 1967, King’s speech gives us pause and inspiration, as does his statement, “We must find new ways to speak for peace … and justice throughout the world …”

We salute Dr. King’s courage and vision. He saw and struggled for an America and world that can be. We pledge in his memory to work to reorder our nation’s priorities “so that the pursuit of peace will take precedence over the pursuit of war.”
