Dr. Martin Luther King stood for equality and justice until his death 44 years ago today.
The Levitt 2012 campaign announced Dr. Levitt's 2012 Senate candidacy at an event in Sebastopol on the MLK holiday in January.
In these two video excerpts, Dr. Levitt speaks about Dr. King's legacy, equality, and justice in their generation.
MLK's Fair Housing Triumph in California
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 disrupted housing discrimination in California and throughout the United States, but its legacy continues today in the restrictive clauses still signed by new homeowners. You may be surprised to hear what's in them.
Protecting the Troops and the American Dream of Justice
In Dr. King's era, Americans openly aspired to justice and due process for the accused and even for the guilty. Dr. Levitt talks about the responsibility to protect the troops and contrasts the War on Terror with the American values Dr King's generation grew up with. We won't let today's generation of politicians steal that legacy from us, or our children, today.
