On this day, we want to reflect on the legacy left by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Thanks to his convictions, individuals around our country united to defend the civil rights of minority populations. Nearly 60 years later, Stand for Children Colorado is still fighting for the rights of students. We believe that all children, regardless of background, race, or economic status, deserve a high-quality education. In order to succeed in college, career, and as a citizen, our students need critical thinking skills that allow them to solve problems and absorb information.
