Reflecting on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The crowd at Martin Luther King Jr's I Have a Dream Speech at the Lincoln Memorial

Martin Luther King, Jr. is an American hero who led one of the greatest movements for justice in history, moving our country closer to the ideals that inspired its creation. That struggle continues, and we all have a role to play.

Just as Dr. King rallied a diversity of voices to create change in his time, we must unite with those around us to continue to make progress in ours. Stand Together is proud to partner with social entrepreneurs from all walks of life who are moving our country closer toward its true promise. The dream can still be realized, if we as Americans have the courage to come together and pursue it.
