"We honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today and every day for his lifelong fight for equality and justice, and for standing up for the rights of millions of Americans to make their voices heard.
Minnesotans honor Dr. King’s life’s work and legacy every time they exercise their right to vote, which Minnesotans did in record numbers this past election. We must not take for granted the progress that’s been made. It is imperative that we continue Dr. King’s work to protect, defend, and strengthen the right to vote for all Americans." - Secretary of State Steve Simon
