Concord - NNew Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream Speech."

"Today our country celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of the most important moments in the struggle for liberty and justice for all. We honor the thousands of people who joined Dr. King in Washington and raised their voices to 'let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire,' and give everybody a chance to achieve the American Dream.

"Although there is still much work to be done, our country is a better place today as a result of Dr. King's vision, compassion and message of equality. His words continue to inspire us 50 years later, and I urge people across New Hampshire to take time today to commemorate the significant contribution that Dr. King made to our state and to our great nation."
