Since 1986, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has commemorated and celebrated Dr. King’s life and commitment to civil rights. Today, it is also the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage volunteering and civic engagement.
MLK Day of Service 2022 also happens to coincide with the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat, an ecological awareness day often marked by planting trees!
