Honor Dr. King’s legacy on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
January 18, 2021
This year marks the 26th anniversary of the King Day of Service, established in 1994, asking all Americans to volunteer to improve their community with “a day on, not a day off.”
Even during this time of pandemic, Americans are encouraged to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and recommit to advancing the causes of social justice by serving their neighbors and communities, working together to provide solutions to both our national and local problems, including equal rights for all Americans.
It is also a time to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. A time to reflect and take action on civil rights issues across the globe.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) was established in 1993 to highlight the work of local and national organizations, working with President Obama’s Task Force on Expanding National Service, to tap the can-do spirit of the American people and impact their communities.
Consider honoring Dr. King’s life, work and global vision by making a commitment to make a positive difference in the lives of people every day.
