On MLK Day, Biden says Americans must commit to King's work

From ABC News | Politics by Jeff Martin and Michael Warren

President Joe Biden says Americans must commit to the unfinished work of Martin Luther King Jr, delivering jobs and justice and protecting what he calls “the sacred right to vote, a right from which all other rights flow.”

“It’s time for every elected official in America to make it clear where they stand," Biden said. “It’s time for every American to stand up. Speak out, be heard. Where do you stand?”

This holiday marks what would have been the 93rd birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who was just 39 when he was assassinated in 1968 while helping sanitation workers strike for better pay and workplace safety in Memphis, Tennessee.
