Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Initiated by Congress in 1994, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a nationwide effort to transform the federal holiday into a day of community service in order 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.
