MLK Day 2020: Volunteer and Celebrate with Kids in New Jersey
Martin Luther King, Jr., the chief spokesperson for the Civil Rights Movement, is memorialized annually on the third Monday of January. This floating holiday has evolved into more than just a day off from school; now deemed a National Day of Service, MLK Day encourages volunteers across the country to donate their time in order to make a difference. This day reminds us of hope, compassion, and the ongoing potential for social change.
Many New Jersey towns are hosting local MLK Day activities, and we've put together a list that includes both celebrations and service activities. Unless otherwise noted, all events take place on Monday, January 20, 2020.
