GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--University of North Dakota students are calling for inclusion of all people as the campus celebrates Martin Luther King Day.

A hundred people packed into the Gorecki Alumni Center for a discussion on equality.

Children as young as three used paint to show how they feel about King's legacy in honor of his birthday.

University students say it's up to city and nationwide leaders to honor the contribution of refugees -- in the wake of President Trump's reported comments on immigrants from other countries.

“If we look back in history, we can see that some of the people from those countries--the population helped build America to what it is today,” said Organizer of Diversity and Inclusion, Stacey Borbora-Peterson.

Organizers in the Black Student Association say peace, equality and justice are the themes of the day.
