“Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. dedicated his life to the service of others. He fought for equality of all people and to make our country a better place… As King’s legacy reminds us, we all have a responsibility to help move our neighborhoods and our nation in a positive direction.” –U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow is a strong advocate of equal rights and civil justice in the State of Michigan. Her impeccable background in making a difference in the community inspires me greatly to be the change I wish to see in the world as a woman. As her intern in 2011, I was inspired by her passion to fight for women in families at the Nation’s Capitol. Therefore, I nominated her in December 2011 for the EMU Humanitarian Award for her outstanding efforts. Shortly after she won the EMU Humanitarian on January 14, 2012. US Senator Stabenow is a positive role model for all women and it was a blessing to serve in such a capacity in her District office.
