Employee Service Program (ESP)

Employee Service Program

  • Confidential
  • No Cost
  • Voluntary

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 16, ESP encourages you to show kindness and respect towards others while recognizing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Dr. King’s pursuit of civil rights still influences us today. His words and his passion for a more equitable United States of America will forever be remembered in his “I Have a Dream” speech delivered during the 1963 March on Washington, which called for an end to racism and discrimination.

What some people may not know is that months before the March on Washington, Dr. King first delivered a version of his speech at Detroit’s Cobo Hall, capping the Detroit Walk to Freedom. You are invited to listen to both recordings at the links below:
