U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesWashington, D.C. – On this day, we honor the life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of fighting for racial equality, human rights and economic justice. Dr. King believed deeply in the American Dream and that people of every race, religion and creed should have the opportunity to share in it.

His courageous leadership on civil rights included a passionate advocacy on behalf of the poor. Dr. King memorably described inequality in health care as the “most shocking and inhumane” form of injustice. These words continue to resonate, as there is nothing more essential to opportunity than good health.
