NATCA Honors the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today we pause to honor the incredible life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In his open Letter from Birmingham Jail, on April 16, 1963, Dr. King said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

While some of the injustices Dr. King fought may have changed, his moral clarity and passion for pursuit of justice and equality still reverberate today. NATCA shares Dr. King’s enduring vision for equality. In every part of the work of our Union, and through NATCA’s Union Synergy Committee, we work to recognize and address the effect of bias on the work culture and climate amongst all of NATCA’s safety professionals.

In addition, every day the members of our great Union demonstrate the devotion to justice that Dr. King called for as we fight for fair wages, benefits, and the necessary working conditions to maintain a safe National Airspace System. Dr. King and those carrying the torch of justice continue the timely and timeless conversation of the Letter from Birmingham Jail. We have come so far, but we have much farther to go, and the journey is long.

MLK Day was designated as a national day of service in 1994 and is now recognized as a day volunteers across the nation take on Dr. King’s legacy of service.
