MLK Day of Service 2012

During his lifetime, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. worked tirelessly toward a dream of equality. He believed in a nation of freedom and justice for all, and encouraged all citizens to live up to the purpose and potential of America by uniting and taking action to make this country a better place to live. Join Groundwork Anacostia River DC, and Sierra Club/Pope Branch Park Restoration Alliance and the hundreds of thousands of people who serve on MLK Day to make this holiday “a day on,” and not “a day off.”
