MLK Jr. Day of Service 2022

*REGISTRATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE: https://cerv.is/m?0119x2675*
The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action to build the Beloved Community of Dr. King’s dream. While Dr. King believed the Beloved Community was possible, he acknowledged and fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action.

Observed each year on the third Monday in January, MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. - From AmeriCorps.gov
