Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
After a long struggle, legislation was signed in 1983 creating a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is being celebrated this year on Monday,
January 20. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is:
'What are you doing for others?' Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
In 1994, Congress designated 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."
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. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."
