MLK Jr. Day of Service
Join us and serve our community and celebrate MLK Jr.’s legacy with a day ON, not a day off. Follow @CityYearTulsa for more information
On Monday, January 20, 2020, volunteers will join City Year’s 3,000+ AmeriCorps members at locations across the United States to participate in a day of service. City Year commemorates the civil rights movement and honors the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by celebrating Dr. King’s birthday as a “day ON, not a day off” through service projects such as mural and wall painting, restoring park areas, landscaping community spaces, and leading educational activities for children.
Here at City Year Tulsa, we’ve been celebrating MLK Day since our inception in 2014. The diversity of the schools we serve represent the essence of the American Dream that all children deserve a “free” education that will take them to and through college and/or into careers.
Hundreds of volunteers from across the city and state will come together on this day to transform and beautify a school or community space with murals, painting and light construction projects in an effort to reconnect, transform, uplift, and inspire the students, staff, and community.
