Honoring Dr. King by Focusing on Today's Challenges
Last Friday, the ADA Education Fund held the annual "What Would Martin Do?" event on Capitol Hill. A prestigious panel of speakers, including the Hon. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and the Hon. Harris Wofford, addressed the question of how the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., might approach critical policy issues facing the country in the 21st century. Watch the video now on C-SPAN.
