Honor a legacy of service

On Monday, January 20, our country honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a man who devoted his life to pursuing equality and serving others. During one of King’s last sermons, he talked about the end of his life. He shared, “I’d like somebody to mention on that day Martin Luther King, Jr. tried to give his life serving others... I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity.”

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law on November 2, 1983 and it was first celebrated on January 20, 1986. We observe the holiday annually on the third Monday in January, which typically falls near King’s birthday, January 15. To further honor King’s mission and legacy, this holiday evolved into a national day of service under legislation President Bill Clinton signed into law on August 23, 1994. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the day of service.

The King Center shares more about Dr. King and the King Philosophy. You can also check out these Fast Facts from CNN for more on the history of the holiday.

If you’re interested in volunteering in your community, you can visit the Corporation for National & Community Service or your local volunteer center/organization to learn more about volunteer opportunities in your area.
