Event Description

This is a part of L.A. Works’ MLK Jr. Day of Service 2021 event, the first ever multi-platform event from this organization to honor Dr. King’s life and legacy.

The L.A. Works Staff has been hard at work putting together virtual events that will be inclusive, safe, and active for all involved. The day-long, choose your own adventure service experience builds upon the anti-racism movement through online projects at home focused on systemic racism and advocacy actions.

The staff comes together every year to build awareness and activism on this Day of Service and we think you’ll find what we’ve planned to be an engaging virtual way to celebrate the day, no matter which city you are in.

Food insecurity has disproportionately affected Black Americans. This workshop will teach you how to advocate for change. Racial inequities in food insecurity have deepened in the wake of the pandemic and its economic fallout.

In 2017, Black people represented only 9% of the general population in Los Angeles County yet comprised 40% of the population experiencing homelessness. Fighting structural racism, oppression and advocating for change is the first step to helping foster true equity in our community.

Learn how criminal justice is heavily impacted by the racial bias of police mentality and advocate for change.

This 2021 MLK Day of Service is a chance for you to Be The Change from the safety of your home.
