Press release from the Office of State Representative Mary Edly-Allen

For immediate release
Jan. 20, 2020

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day and every day we must take guidance from his words:

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Thank you to everyone who put together today’s Martin Luther King Jr. Dreamer’s Award Breakfast in Waukegan to honor individuals’ outstanding service to their community.
