January 21, 2019 will mark the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday. This milestone is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call-to-service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. Honor Dr.
