Subject: MLK “Week of Remembrance” in PA Resolution
In the VERY near future I intend to introduce a resolution that honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This resolution will recognize the week of January 15th through January 22nd, 2017, as “Martin Luther King, Jr., Week of Remembrance” in Pennsylvania.

I firmly believe that those who do not study and remember history are doomed to repeat it. Dr. King was a man who fought for equality for all people --every race, color and creed--and fought tirelessly to realize equal protections for all. His efforts have not been in vain, not if we keep watch over and remembrance of those efforts.

Obviously, since our National Holiday for Dr. King is the third Monday of January and this year, Monday January 16th, 2017 is Martin Luther King Day, I will be expediting the introduction of this resolution. I sincerely hope you will join me in cosponsoring this resolution.

Thank you.
