Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service


“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?”
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday is a National Day of Service, and a time to re-commit ourselves to serving each other and our communities. Americans across the country will honor Dr. King by helping their neighbors and communities. This Day of Service is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community service that helps solve problems.

For MLK Day each year, there are typically community projects, an at home DIY, and a movie screening or other community oriented event. More information for 2017 will be available in late 2016.
