Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

Monday, January 21st, 2019 from 7:00am to 2:00pm


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 the 8th Annual MLK 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 inspired Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On this page, there are various community organization options for you to volunteer. Please select ONE organization with whom you wish to volunteer.
