MLK Day of Service and Solidarity 2023

The MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity is part of a national day of service as campuses serve and stand in solidarity with their communities in honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Each year, this event is coordinated by the Office of Student Life in collaboration with the MLK Commemoration Week Executive Planning Committee. This year's Day of Service and Solidarity is also being held in collaboration with the Talking Together initiative and will feature an added focus on intergenerational dialogue through partnering students and senior community members for the day.

The goals of this event are to educate participants about the Civil Rights movement; inspire people to engage in their communities by listening, learning, and advocating for social change on campus and beyond; and to learn from one another through intergenerational conversations as people work side-by-side.

Visit the MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity website  for more information; students, faculty and staff and the community can register by January 18.

The day runs from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. and will include community service at various sites, lunch on the Pew Grand Rapids Campus followed by a panel discussion. Buses will be provided for students.
