Volunteer New York!’s 2021 MLK DAY
Today Volunteer New York! announced their 11th Annual MLK Day of Service will consist of two new socially-informed and major virtual community events. These events will premiere live over the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend starting Saturday, January 16 with a highly anticipated webinar that’s focused on Volunteering with Equity in Mind and then on Sunday, January 17 with a Virtual Sunday Supper community discussion. Both events are from 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM and are free to sign up for.
“This MLK Day I call on our community to break bread and break down barriers. And to use this opportunity to really listen and learn more,” said Jeanette Gisbert, Volunteer New York! Executive Director. “This is what resilient communities are built upon.”
Registration is now open for the MLK Day 2021 virtual events at volunteernewyork.org/MLK.
