|But his legacy is too often co-opted and his message appropriated by people who are actually fighting for policies that stand in opposition to King’s values. Dr. King was in Memphis for a sanitation workers’ strike, and throughout his life, he argued for better wages, working conditions, and strong unions for low-income workers and communities of color. But the Trump administration and many in Congress are enacting policies that weaken Americans’ power to organize into unions and earn decent wages. And the congressional Republicans’ tax plan will only exacerbate the wealth gap, which King fought so hard to end. King also devoted much of his life to ending the injustices within our health care system, saying, “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” But too many of our members of Congress are trying to undermine the progress made under the Affordable Care Act. He fought tirelessly for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but conservatives in power have essentially turned back the clock through voter ID laws, gerrymandered districts, and voter roll purges – all of which disproportionately disadvantage people of color.
