St Joseph High School students spent part of the day giving back to their school and their community as part of the Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and in commemoration of Black History Month. The students cleaned the various areas of the high school, St. Joseph Elementary School, made sandwiches for a local food bank, and made care packages for a local shelter. The day concluded with a presentation and talk by Olympian, Priscilla Fredricks and former football coach, Glenn Hutton sharing their message of fighting for racial unity and equality as “soldiers for the Lord.” #blackhistorymonth#mlkdayofservice
If you get the chance, visit the Dream Booths on the 4th floor of City Hall. Hundreds of students wrote their hopes & experiences on cloths, in response to gun violence in Philadelphia. These booths include an interactive ballot box, where visitors can add their thoughts and solutions to end gun violence. Created during the MLK Day of Service at Girard College and dispersed throughout the city, Dream Booth was a collaboration with many partners, originally conceived of by Cloud Cloth Education. . . . #ceasefire#ceasefirepa#endgunviolence#philly#students#studentvoice#youth#voice#power#community#mlk#mlkday#mlkdayofservice

“Something is happening in our world. The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee — the cry is always the same: ‘We want to be free.’” -MLK Jr. . As we participate in #mlkdayofservice and bring #nyumlkweek2019 to a close, let us continue to carry Dr. King’s spirit of solidarity towards collective freedom. #nyu#nyugidi#nyumlkweek

#featurefriday: “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.” -- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ⠀ ⠀ Dr. King recognized that our common humanity is rooted in values that we share despite our different backgrounds. In this case, service is the best representation of our most noble qualities that is recognized by all people. ⠀ ⠀ GPF wants to highlight the MLK Jr. Day of Service held in Lynnwood, Washington where over 70 volunteers gathered to spend a day on rather than a day off. #mlkdayofservice#globalpeace#youthleadership#moralleadership

January 19th and January 21st- two very big days for our organization. First, we stood in front of the @womensmarchphilly’s representing the many sides to gun violence that our nation experiences. Gun violence is an issue that touches most if not all of American society- whether that be through school shootings, hate crimes, shootings on a street, domestic violence, etc. Second, we participated in @globalcitizen365’s MLK Day of Service at Girard College. We held a discussion on the impact gun violence has on communities, ways we can advocate for change, and what needs to be changed in order to hopefully put an end to gun violence in America. We also helped create @dreamlineb’s Dream Booths with government officials and teens from the Philly area. On each banner is someone’s idea of what a world without gun violence would look like. Overall, we had an extremely powerful weekend at both of these events. Thank you to our amazing videographer, Torey, from @phillycamyouth for attending these events with us and creating this amazing video. #philly#becauseofagun#womensmarch#mlk#mlkdayofservice#aworldwithoutgunviolence#dreambooths#dream#marchforourlives#marchforourlivesphilly

UD's MLK Day of Service event is happening in a couple weeks - once the spring semester begins - and the Service Team Leaders had our pre-service trip today! we worked to remove an old bush from a local state park, so that the landscaping can be redone. it was my job to tamp down the trimmed branches and make sure there was room for everything! exhausting, satisfying, and fun. . . . #communityservice#localpark#statepark#volunteering#mlkdayofservice#ud#udel

We would like to thank everyone who volunteered at our @FIU BBC MLK Day of Service event. It was wonderful to see so many people choose to spend their Saturday working together with us. We had groups of volunteers help plant new trees and mulch the gardens, walk along the bay picking up trash, and removing invasive species. It was such a successful event and we hope to see even more volunteers next year! . . #mlkdayofservice#environment#garden
