When our first Black president, Barack Obama, took office, he took pains to invigorate the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national Day of Service.

The website features a number of resources to plan how you can best serve your country and your local community.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

Tell us what YOU are planning to do this MLK Day to both celebrate and serve!
