MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity

MLK Day of Service and Solidarity 2021

About MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity

The MLK Jr. Day of Service and Solidarity is part of a national day of service where campuses across America gather together to serve and stand in solidarity with their communities in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Each year, this event is coordinated by the Office of Student Life - Civic Engagement in collaboration with the MLK 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.

An intergenerational panel of community leaders will discuss the legacy of Dr. King and the future of his vision for justice in our communities.
