McElroy and Brig. "Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster, 'White House staff secretary. "Every citizen who helps to make legal and economic equality a living fact is helping America," the President said. The President made his appeal on the eve of the 94th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, a date now designated as "Equal Opportunity Day."
