MLK Day of Service in St. Louis

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at
St. Louis, MO


Join Us to Support Underserved Communities in Our Area

Partners: Human Rights Campaign & International Institute of St. Louis

MLK Day of Service is on January 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 community is the more than 7,500 immigrants and refugees arriving in St. Louis each year. HRC and the International Institute invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting our local community.
