What is
MLK Day about?
The only race we must support is the human race.
The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is an official day of service that commemorates the civil rights leader's life and contributions to the United States. It is named after the well-known American civil rights activist who spent his life to achieve equality for people of all races and ethnic backgrounds.
The webinar focuses on three key aspects
  • Why is this movement important to them?
  • How are their organizations supporting this movement?
  • How can virtual/ hybrid volunteering help amplify this global movement?
Meet your team of inspirational leaders who have carried forward the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., by fostering a spirit of equality and openness within their organizations.
