SAN FRANCISCO - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“Today we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and honor the progress we have made toward realizing his dream of justice and equality for all. His legacy has transcended nearly fifty years, inspiring generations of Americans to lead with his compassion and resolve to build a more just nation.    

In this spirit, today we also reflect on the road that still lies ahead to reach those who continue to suffer from inequality and injustice. To truly honor Dr. King, we must re-commit ourselves to his work and never forget that ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’”
