Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. helped to transform a nation by harnessing the assets of communities to confront the deep racial divisions of the time through non-violent direct action. His life and legacy continue to inspire us to act and be bold against injustice and to be inclusive in our words and deeds.

Through Dr. Martin Luther King Day, Jr. Day of Service, the University of La Verne seeks to not only recommit itself to its own mission, but also to invite students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members to honor the legacy of service and community that inspired Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and so many others by being of service to surrounding communities. This year's theme is unity and pluralism; this day of service is a call to action to work together across diverse experiences to serve others at various community organizations.
