Embracing the Spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: A Message of Resilience & Unity

Updated: Mar 3

Dear UAPD Members,

As we reflect on the holiday weekend and the challenges we face, I am reminded of the enduring spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His legacy of resilience, determination, and the pursuit of justice is an inspiration to us all, especially in times when we are navigating through complex negotiations and advocating for essential changes.


Dr. King once said, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."


Your commitment to your Union, your colleagues, and the communities you serve echoes the principles that Dr. King championed. The perseverance you've demonstrated in the face of obstacles is a testament to the strength of our collective spirit.


Long fights are not unfamiliar to us, and history has shown us that they are usually worth the struggle. Dr. King's legacy reminds us that change takes time, and the journey toward justice and equality is marked by endurance and resilience.


As we work to find solutions to the recruitment and retention crisis, let us draw inspiration from the words of Dr. King. Let us stand strong together, supporting one another through the challenges that lie ahead. The struggle we face is not just for our benefit but for the betterment of the healthcare landscape and the well-being of our communities.


Your commitment to this cause mirrors the spirit of those who have fought for justice throughout history. Through unity and perseverance, we can overcome the hurdles before us and emerge stronger on the other side.


Thank you for your dedication, your unwavering spirit, and your commitment to the principles that define us as a union. Together, let us continue to march forward with resilience and hope, knowing that our efforts will contribute to a better future.


In solidarity,


Stuart A. Bussey, M.D., J.D.

UAPD President
