As we reflect on the legacy and teaching of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his powerful words and commitment to the fight for civil rights and social justice continues to be the moral compass that we strive to follow. As we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., please remember that this isn’t just a day of remembrance, but of service. As Dr. King once stated, “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”

Today, we encourage everyone to post pictures as you participate in an action that promotes positivity and service for others.
