MLK Day 2021

MLK Day 2021

MLK Blog

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the third Monday of every January. It is the only holiday we like to recognize as an “on” day rather than an off day. We are encouraged to get up, get out, and practice some kind of service or giving back to the community in order to honor the civil rights leader’s legacy. We, as AmeriCorps members, take this to heart each year and use this day to volunteer in the community in some way shape or form. Because of the unlikely circumstances this year with the pandemic, there aren’t as many opportunities to serve and many are finding it hard to find ways to celebrate MLK Day this year. We compiled a list of resources for you to learn more about the wonderful leader through articles, videos, webinars and volunteer opportunities that are available that day to attend if you are one of those looking to make MLK day a day of service.
