Come together to meet a variety of community-identified needs through a single day of engagement!
Please review the list of options that include remote and virtual opportunities as well as self-directed projects that include ways you can support a handful of organizations with either a financial contribution or item donation. If the project does not appear on the registration form, the project has been filled. We ask that you only sign up for a project if you plan on participating since it would otherwise take an opportunity away from someone.
After you register, you’ll be contacted by the project site leader with additional instructions in the 2 weeks leading up to the event on Saturday, January 15th.
If you have questions, please contact Bryce Williams, Senior Programs Manager at Bryce.firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-581-4811.
This event is part of MLK Week (January 15 – 21, 2022).
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Week (MLK Week) is a platform to engage students, faculty, staff, trainees, and community members in critical conversations around contemporary Civil Rights issues and race in America. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of the “beloved community” as a nonviolent, just society where love and trust triumph over fear and hatred. In a year that has been filled with division, the 2022 MLK Week planning committee chose “Becoming the Beloved Community” as this year’s theme so we may explore ways to bridge the divide and work together to become the beloved community. Events and conversations throughout the week will honor Dr. King’s vision, offer direction, and challenge us to determine a better way forward.
