Martin Luther King Jr. promoted equality with an understanding that once we put our prejudices aside, we as a community are stronger together rather than divided. Dr. King’s ‘s message of selflessness and unity is more relevant now than ever. As we come together on this National Day of Service, we hope to honor his vision by recognizing the importance of giving back to our community.
