We dedicated this moment of reflection and remembrance, at 4:04 p.m., Jan. 15, 2018, to the work that has been done & the work left to do. Fifty years ago this year, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s physical voice was silenced on 4/4/1968. We carry his work forward still. We see transportation as a human right and we embrace Dr. King’s quest for equity & social justice. Thank you for joining us today in remembering & honoring the legacy of Dr. King.
