Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Take the “day on, not off” with us as we follow Dr. King’s steps in serving our community.

We’re gathering as a community to honor the seminal figure of the civil rights movement with a day of service and dialogue brought to you by our partners from AmeriCorps, NAACP, the Women of Color Muralists, and students from Lawrence and Free State high schools. We aim to commemorate King’s legacy on this day and throughout the year by involving the community in critical conversations.
