Partners: Human Rights Campaign & Lifeworks Austin
MLK Day of Service is on January 14, 2017. We hope you all will join us once again in transforming this national holiday into a "day on, not a day off" meant to turn Dr. King's teachings into a day of action across the country, and to deepen our commitment and connection to those in our community who are too often at its margins.
One such challenge is tackling at-risk and foster youth. HRC and Lifeworks Austin invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting this community.
How can YOU make a difference?
