Press Release

Washington, D.C.Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, released the following statement in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, ‘The ultimate test of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and moments of convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.’ Now more than ever Martin Luther King’s words ring true. We must continue to be inspired and lead the charge against inequality. May his words continue to guide our hearts when faced with moments of injustice, bigotry and racism. Today and every day we must honor Dr. King’s legacy by ensuring we live in a nation where no man, woman, or child are judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
