This Monday, January 18 we will celebrate the life and legacy of civil rights hero Martin Luther King, Jr. MLK Day became a federal holiday in 1986 and a National Day of Service in 1994. Given the horrifying events of the past week, it’s more important than ever to take time to honor MLK Day. We each have a responsibility to educate ourselves to be anti-racist. As a champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion, I passionately believe in the importance of building a more tolerant, just, and inclusive world. There are many ways you can honor MLK Day and be inspired to serve your community. Here are some opportunities, events, and resources. Please feel free to add your thoughts and ideas in the comments.
