Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., today paid tribute to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which is holding its 50th Annual Convention this weekend in Atlanta.   

“My Uncle Martin had a dream that one day America would live out the creed that all men are created equal,” said Dr. King.  “Thanks to the SCLC’s 50 years of peaceful, purposeful work, that dream is closer than ever to reality.  I am humbled to be a part of an organization that has struggled mightily for equality and respect for all Americans.

“As we celebrate the SCLC’s golden anniversary, though, I’m reminded that an entire class of people, a class that is disproportionately African American, still suffers violence in our country,” added Dr. King.  “It was the violence afflicted on school children in the South that moved a nation to strive for justice for all.  I pray that one day soon, the violence against our tiniest, most helpless children, those yet unborn, will also end and we will lovingly welcome all Americans into our beloved community.” 

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
