Inside the Statehouse: MLK Day Edition

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a larger than life figure. His efforts in the Civil Rights Movement continue to inspire and motivate activists to this day.

Dr. King once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" On this day when Dr. King’s legacy of activism and social justice is recognized, the Indiana Institute for Working Families invites you to do something for working Hoosier families.

Listed at the bottom of this post are the bills the Institute is following this legislative session. The links will take you to the summary page for each specific bill where you can find the text of the bill, committee and floor votes, fiscal impact statements, and proposed amendments. The Institute will also be summarizing key legislation from our policy agenda each week, right here on Inside the Statehouse!

In honor of the great man whom we celebrate today, we ask that you choose one of these bills and get involved! Tell your friends, family, and co-workers about the bill you are following. When a vote comes up, consider sending an email or calling your legislator letting them know your opinion. (We are always available to connect you with their contact information. You can find your legislator here.) Watch the House and Senate live online. Maybe even take a day to come to the Statehouse and watch your bill in committee or on the floor of the House or Senate. Comment below with the bill you are following! Bonus: tell us why.

No matter our personal circumstances, we can speak up and ensure public policy is meeting the needs of all who call Indiana home, including the third of Hoosiers who live below economic self-sufficiency and can’t afford the basics. As our voices and stories join the narrative, we answer Dr. King’s persistent and urgent question.

For more resources as you track a bill, like the Indiana Institute for Working Families on Facebook and follow us on Twitter If you believe in our work and want to amplify our message at the Statehouse, we welcome your donations.
