Event Description

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action. Dr. King believed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” as he fought for systemic change. Join L.A. Works  to continue the longstanding tradition of organizing Angelenos to unite in service and activism to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As we work to heal from the pandemic and its devastating impact on our community, the focus of this year’s Martin Luther King Day of Service is to combat one of the critical issues that has surfaced – education equity and the academic achievement gap. Angelenos can carry on Dr. King’s legacy of activism by participating in the following virtual service activities:

Virtual @Home – Zoom in at home for projects focused on educational equity, including an interactive opportunity to share personal and professional experiences, engage in online tutoring, and a virtual workshop focused on helping LAUSD educators.

Minecraft March on Washington – For the second year in a row, volunteers can tour a virtual exhibit of the historic 1963 March on Washington and Little Rock 9 through the world of Minecraft and interact with Civil Rights leaders like Dr. King himself and activists who are continuing Dr. King’s legacy today.
