CELEBRATE MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. BIRTHDAY

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday is a day of honor and commemorative events at a variety of sites in Washington, DC. Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday is January 15th and is celebrated each year on the third Monday in January. In 1994, to further commemorate a man who lived his life in service to others, Congress transformed the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday into a national day of community service.

If you are in the Washington, DC area here is a schedule of special events to honor this civil rights leader and to give local residents the opportunity to reach out to help those in need.
