Dr. Martin Luther King Day
January 18, 2021
Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
Both in-person and online happenings make up the 200-plus Martin Luther King Day of Service events in the Philly area. Organized by Global Citizen, the annual celebration of the Rev. Dr. King’s legacy includes a food delivery volunteer opportunity with the Jewish Relief Agency, a series of online programs about racial equity organized by Penn State Brandywine’s Center for Ethics and Civic Engagement, and a cleanup of South Philly’s Mifflin Square Park. See individual events and opportunities in this event listing and calendar and the website for other ways to get involved (free).
