Governor Mills’ Statement in Honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

January 16, 2023

Governor Janet Mills issued the following statement today in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day:

“Through his life and deeds, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. reminded us that progress requires participation, and that America’s promise can only be fulfilled when our founding ideals of liberty and equality are extended to all people. As we pause to reflect upon Dr. King’s legacy, let us all recommit to building a state that values and celebrates the dignity of all people, where equality of opportunity is unquestioned, and where bigotry, hatred, and injustice have no home.”
