Building Dr. King’s “Beloved Community” One Act at a Time

Poster advertising Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service 2014This January 20, to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., schools and communities across the country are called to dedicate that day to serving others.

Register your local project or find a project near you at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service website. There you will also find more than 20 toolkits for projects, ranging from starting a community garden to organizing a prison book drive, and many other resources.
