Thanks for Celebrating Martin Luther King's Birthday With Us!
Last Friday, we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday by asking the question, "What Would Martin Do?" In addition to our blog for the Huffington Post, we also held an event on Capitol Hill. We were honored to have a distinguished panel to share their thoughts with us.
