JAN 18 | Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 18, 2021, is the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
In honor of Dr. King, the Biden-Harris Inaugural Committee has joined the call to action for Americans to serve. Individuals can pledge to serve and post or find opportunities to serve directly on their site: https://bideninaugural.org/day-of-service/.
