Every year, on Marting Luther King Day, Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network (NAN) welcome prominent elected officials and civil rights leaders at events all over the country to honor the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and address how it can be protected.

NAN chapters across the United States will recognize the holiday with civil rights events in Washington, D.C.; New York City; Newark, NJ; Cleveland, OH; Charleston, SC; Macon, GA; San Diego, CA; and many others.

In 2014, Vice President Joe Biden gave the keynote address at the annual King Day breakfast in Washington D.C. In his address, he called for the full restoration of the Voting Rights Act.
