FSWC Marks Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 21, 2019

Statement

On the third Monday of January each year, we remember civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. and his extraordinary commitment to fighting hate.

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center is marking the day by educating young people and spreading King’s important message of standing up against discrimination and intolerance.

“King’s leadership and perseverance is an inspiration to all. While starting as a leader of the civil rights movement in the US, he soon became the world’s symbol of human rights, justice and freedom,” said FSWC President and CEO Avi Benlolo.
