MLK Day of Service in Mississippi

Monday, January 16, 2017 at
Jackson, MS

Join Us to Help At-Risk and LGBTQ Youth in Your Community

Partners: Human Rights Campaign Mississippi & United Way of the Capital Area

MLK Day of Service is on January 16, 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 homelessness among LGBTQ youth as well as non-LGBTQ, at-risk youth. HRC Mississippi and the United Way of Capital Area invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting homeless and at-risk youth in your community, including LGBTQ youth.

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