Senator Cory Gardner Statement on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Washington, DC - Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the below statement on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

“Today, we honor the teachings, life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We reflect not just on what he said or did, but the change he set in motion,” said Senator Gardner. “Dr. King spent his life spreading what he called the gospel of freedom. He faced fierce opposition, but he never gave up and his words and example inspire us now. As Americans, there is so much more that unites us than divides us. Fundamentally, we all strive for a more perfect union and for a peaceful America, free of inequality and hate. In that spirit, I encourage everyone to search for what unites us and work together with our neighbors – because the future of our United States of America is as bright as ever.”
