Family members of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. plan to commemorate his legacy in an unusual, but fitting, way next month: by refusing to celebrate in the name of voting rights.
Beginning in Arizona on Jan. 15, the late King Jr.’s birthday, members of his family will call on organizers, faith leaders, and everyday people to cross physical bridges in their communities as a form of protest to restrictive voting laws. The demonstrations will culminate in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 17, Martin Luther King Day, where the King family will call for no celebrations of the holiday until the Biden administration and Congress succeed on voting rights policy.
