The President is calling on all Americans to participate in our nation’s recovery and renewal by serving in our communities. There are many ways to get involved. America’s new foundation will be built one community at a time – and it starts with you.
Today is MLK Day – Get Out and Serve!
During the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, we remember and celebrate his life by encouraging Americans to participate in acts of service.
Dr. King believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all, and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by applying the principles of nonviolence to make this country a better place to live—creating the Beloved Community. The MLK Day of Service is a way to transform Dr. King’s life and teachings into community action that helps solve social problems.
The Corporation for National and Community Service is proud to lead this national day of service and asks all Americans to participate in the MLK Day Challenge by serving not just today, but all year long.
