Today we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and celebrate his legacy of compassion, love, and revolutionary work toward racial and social justice.
Since 1986, people across our country have commemorated this day by spending it giving back through acts of service to their communities, with the words of Dr. King serving as a reminder that “Everybody can be great because anyone can serve.”
Dr. King’s legacy reminds us that we all can take action every single day, in small ways and big. It reminds us that our world can be more beautiful—if we fight for it.
Whether it’s signing up to become a scholarship review volunteer with Pride Foundation, volunteering in your home community, or showing up in other ways that fill your cup, we hope you’ll join us in taking action today, and every day.
We are so honored to be part of a community whose continued service, passion, and dedication shine a light on the beauty, hope, and possibility all around us.
Katie Carter is Pride Foundation’s CEO.
