Commemorate MLK Day by Getting Involved in Your Community

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is this Monday, January 17, where we celebrate Dr. King’s immeasurable contribution to the United States, and to humankind, as he brought forth hope, healing and change.

During the weeks surrounding MLK Day, all are encouraged to serve their community in honor of Dr. King’s great civil service legacy. Below are several virtual and in-person opportunities to get involved for MLK day and give back to your community.
