2020 MLK Day of Service and Solidarity

Thank you to all who showed up and took action on MLK Day of Service and Solidarity 2020! Students heard an inspiring message from Dr. Rev. Reggie Smtih, who encouraged all of us to do what is right in the face of injustice! Together, students donated nearly 600 hours of volunteer service on this ONE DAY alone, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Thanks all!
