We honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth today, but also his legacy and long term vision of championing causes that lay at the bedrock of our democracy. Many of the battles he fought for over 50 years ago are still being fought today –from racial injustice, voter suppression, economic inequality, and housing segregation to 21st-century challenges, including the use of technology to finance and foster hate. Since our founding in 1963, the same year Dr. King delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law has continued to stand with the disenfranchised, neglected, discriminated, and voiceless. We stand with those who are too often unrepresented in our legal system and who are often without recourse. In these dark and perilous times, with an Administration that is often taking action that undermines the civil rights of vulnerable communities, we are committed to using the courts to fight back and to advance Dr. King’s legacy.
