Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service

IT Colleagues,

Born on January 15, 1929, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister and leader in the civil rights movement, championing justice and equality from the mid-1950s until his death by assassination in 1968. Today, we honor Dr. King’s legacy with a National Day of Service.

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service is an opportunity to create constructive action through civic engagement and give to others in any way you can. That can be anything from volunteering your time for a community project or giving some extra kindness to others in your community. You can visit to find Day of Service projects across the country that honor Dr. King’s legacy of social justice and equality.

“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.
