In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service—a “day on, not a day off.”
Many American Democracy Project and The Democracy Commitment colleges and universities organize and sponsor MLK Day educational and volunteer activities, and we want to know what it is that your campus has planned for this year.
