Ice Miller Honored To Receive Kennedy-King Award
INDIANAPOLIS – Ice Miller LLP was honored to receive the Kennedy/King Community Builders Award for outstanding community service upholding the ideals of Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. The award was presented on April 4 during the Making the Dream a Reality event held at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park located at 17th St. and Broadway in Indianapolis.
The Making the Dream a Reality event commemorated the legacy of Dr. King and was held on the site where 45-years earlier Sen. Kennedy made a memorable speech paying tribute to Dr. King following the civil rights’ leader’s assassination and calling for non-violence.
“One of the most famous quotes to come from Sen. Kennedy’s speech is the call for love, wisdom and compassion towards one another and a feeling of justice toward those who suffer no matter their race,” said Phil Bayt, chief managing partner of Ice Miller. “These are convictions in which we also believe. Ice Miller believes strongly in giving our time and talents to our community, and we are humbled by the recognition of our efforts.”
What we need in the United States is not division. What we need in the United States is not hatred. What we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but love and wisdom and compassion towards one another and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country whether they be white or black.
-- Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, April 4, 1968
