PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Activists in Philadelphia are using Martin Luther King Day as a chance to boost something very important to civil rights activists — voting. The Urban League of Philadelphia and other community leaders are setting up voter outreach locations across the city.

“We’re trying to remember Dr. King’s life and voting is very important,” City Commissioners Vice Chairman Omar Sabir said. “Our life is dependent on it. Now is our time and our time is now. We have to get active.”
