State Senator Dennis Bradley Reflects On Martin Luther King Day

Today, State Senator Dennis Bradley (D-Bridgeport) is reflecting on Dr. Marin Luther King's birthday and is asking others to show love for their community.

"I want to encourage Connecticut residents to remember everything that was Dr. King, summed up in one word, and that word is love," said Sen. Bradley. "Although in his life, his daughter stated there were polls that indicated he was the most hated man in America, we know that even through that hate, Dr. King loved. As we reflect on the year 2020, we know all too well, that the love that Dr. King taught us, must prevail."

Senator Bradley is encouraging the community to explore the Dr. King Center online to honor his life and to donate if you can. Today, LifeBridge Community Services in Bridgeport held a food drive and Senator Bradley is hopeful those who can give to others will participate in activities like these. Senator Bradley says showing support for others keeps Dr. King's legacy alive.
