Each year, on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a “day on, not a day off.” It’s a way to honor Martin Luther King, Jr’s life and teachings is by engaging in community action that continues to solve our social and environmental problems.
So bring family and friends to devote time to community endeavors and habitat conservation on MLK day January 20, 2020.
In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort. MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.”
