Martin Luther King Day of Service

Today marks an American federal holiday, the celebration of the birthdate of a great American, Martin Luther King, Jr.

This year the holiday actually lands on his birthday, Jan. 15. Otherwise, the day is scheduled to be celebrated on the 3rd Monday in January.MLK-Jr-quote

Martin Luther King, Jr., did so much for our nation, in speaking out about injustice, equality, and dignity for all. He gave his life. We owe him much for where we are now as Americans. We need to keep going, speaking out for all people, especially those who have no voice, no power.

This day is known as a day of citizen action and participation in our communities, and as a day of citizen engagement in our democracy in the United States and around the world. Other countries celebrate King as well.

Please join the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley in honoring King’s memory and life today.
