“In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped.”
—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The ADA Education Fund continued the "What Would Martin Do?" tradition for a fourth year, this time asking YOU your thoughts on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the labor movement, and the American Dream.

Dr. King was a champion of collective bargaining rights and not only understood the link between workers' rights and civil rights, but also the role the labor movement plays in pushing our nation towards social and economic progress.  With Michigan’s recent right-to-work law, the arc of the Moral Universe is indeed long.

Now is your chance to tell how you think Dr. King would respond to our nation’s current collective bargaining struggle.  Send us your YouTube, Vimeo, or video file submission to karen@adaction.org and we’ll add your voice to the discussion.  You can also send in a personal essay (no more than 500 words), which will be added to the website.
