Today, Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired joins our community and nation in celebrating the great American leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for the important and considerable contributions he made in our world.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Dr. King’s words and actions continue to inspire us at Clovernook Center. One of our core values is the deep commitment we share to “diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our organization.” We strive to lead by and live up to these values every day for our staff, those we serve, and the blind and visually impaired community.

Clovernook Center is committed to having a diverse workforce by bringing together people of all races, genders, socio-economic backgrounds and physical abilities. More than 35% of our staff are blind or have low vision and our employees are our greatest asset. There is no doubt that our strength comes from our inclusive and integrated workforce.

As we take this day to reflect on Dr. King’s life, during the pandemic and particularly at this moment in history, I believe we must reaffirm the values he worked passionately to achieve.

Please join me in honoring the legacy of Dr. King by committing to social justice, promoting inclusion in all areas of our lives, and making a positive difference for others, every day.
