Get Involved Virtually on MLK Day
MLK Day has become not only a day of remembrance that celebrates the life and achievements of the influential American civil rights leader, but a day of service for all Americans to help those in need, reflect on his message and acknowledge that there is still work to be done to end social injustice for people of color in our country.
Since volunteering in person isn’t possible this year due to COVID, we encourage you to check out some virtual events happening in Milwaukee today or take some time for self-reflection and education to honor the day.
