MLK Day the ADP Way 2016
The Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. once remarked that “The time is always right to do what is right.” This sentiment remains as true today as it was when he first said it. Our work to make our society — our very democracy — the inclusive, racially, socially and economically just set of communities that Dr. King envisioned has, unfortunately, only just begun. ADP campuses across the country are committed to helping students become the informed, engaged citizens that will work toward this more just society. Take a quick look at how just a few of them commemorated this special day. And then let us know how you and your campus continue to make Dr. King’s dream a reality.
