Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, January 19, 2015

February 4, 2015

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"
— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Since 1994, the nation has celebrated the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of service. This is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service — a "day on, not a day off."

The MLK day of service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, and addresses social problems. ACL encourages you to visit to find a volunteer opportunity in your community, and for ideas on planning your own project.
