How Will You Take Action on MLK Day of Service 2020?

Posted on October 22, 2019

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all, and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by applying the principles of nonviolence. MLK Day of Service – now just 3 months away on January 20, 2020 – is a way to honor his life and teachings by engaging in community action that continues to solve social problems.

Service breaks down barriers by bringing people from different experiences together – volunteering can unite Americans of all ages and backgrounds while building stronger communities. Plan your own project and invite your friends, neighbors, classmates, and family to help you make a difference in your community.
