MLK JR. DAY OF SERVICE - 2021

We began this year with the hope that the darkest moments of 2020 would be behind us. But with COVID cases dangerously on the rise, unrestrained vitriol in our civic life, and an unprecedented attack by American citizens against fellow citizens at the United States Capitol, we realize the enormity of the challenges ahead of us. We also know it's not enough to simply be dismayed, shocked, or horrified. We have to act.

On Monday, January 18, 2021, L.A. Works continues our longstanding tradition of organizing Angelenos in service and activism to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Individually we have limited resources, but together as members of what Dr. King referred to as the "beloved community," we can affect meaningful change.

Although our MLK Day of Service event is registration is full, you can still participate by streaming the activities live.
