MLK Day of Service in Chicago

MLK Day of Service in Chicago

Join Us to Support Underserved Communities in Our Area

Partners: Youth Empowerment Performance Project (YEPP), Lakeview Lutheran Church and Human Rights Campaign

Church and Human Rights Campaign MLK Day of Service is on the weekend of January 13 -15, 2018. 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 LGBTQ youth who have experienced homelessness. HRC, Youth Empowerment Performance Project (YEPP) and Lakeview Lutheran Chuch invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting these youths.

How can YOU make a difference?
By donating items and volunteering your time.
