Let's Create Dr. King's Beloved Community

MLK Day of Service Challenges Us to Serve Our Communities

         MLK Day 2022   “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?” Powerful and direct words spoken to an audience in Montgomery, Alabama in 1957 by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Over 60 years later, these words still call the nation to action on a day set aside to honor and celebrate the civil rights leader’s life and legacy.

This week, we urge everyone to join others across the county to help make our communities better places for all. Go out and honor Dr. King’s legacy through a volunteer project of your choice or a simple act of kindness for someone in your community. If you feel compelled to share your story with us (and a quick picture) we would love to see the magnificent work, you are doing for others. Help us create the beloved community of Dr. King’s dream.

Created in 1983, MLK Day is observed each year on the third Monday in January. This day not only commemorates the birthday of Dr. King but also serves as a day to put his teachings into practice…a day to serve others in love and kindness. In 1994, Congress officially set this day aside as a “National Day of Service.” MLK Day is the only federal holiday distinguished as such. This annual call to action encourages us all to take positive steps towards building the “beloved community” he so often spoke of.

            Taking time to volunteer for MLK Day of Service is a great way to engage with your community while recognizing the legacy of Dr. King. Volunteering your time and skills positively impacts your community, honoring the man behind the day. Through our service, we can collectively build stronger, healthier, more equitable communities. Whether you plan on joining the fight against food insecurity, checking in on an isolated senior in your area, mentoring youth in your community, picking up litter near your favorite beach/park, or simply doing an act of kindness for a stranger in your community, honor Dr. King’s legacy through community service and kindness. No act is too small or insignificant.
