Maurice Wallace, Duke University assistant professor and the featured speaker at NIEHS's Martin Luther King Jr. program Jan. 12, said in his presentation, "Changes between Now and Then" that today, more than ever, we need to stand against injustice and reach out to those in need.

Wallace challenged NIEHS employees to keep working to make King's dream a reality. Wallace urged people to be benevolent with those in need, citing events like the Tsunami in December and the war in Iraq.

The audience of about 80 employees gave Wallace a standing ovation, and as is customary, he received a poster announcing the NIEHS MLK program.
