MLK Day of Service

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Monday, January 16, 2023
Sponsorship Opportunities Now Open!
Volunteer Registration Opens December 5, 2022

At the LA Memorial Coliseum in 1964, Dr. King passionately and persuasively addressed 15,000 Angelenos on the issues of race relations and human dignity. In 2023, L.A. Works will continue our long tradition of honoring Dr. King’s legacy by empowering Angelenos to take collective action in the fight for food and climate justice.

While the root cause is systemic white supremacy, the symptoms are that Black, Brown, Indigenous, and low income people have access to the unhealthiest foods and are bearing a disproportionate impact from climate disruptions.

In his 1963 Letter from Birmingham Jail, Dr. King wrote:

“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
