“On Monday we honor the life and work of a great man, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” said U.S. Rep. Sanchez in a press release issued yesterday. “Most importantly we reflect on the ideals of equality and justice which Dr. King championed. Dr. King believed that all people are created equal and he challenged our nation to ensure justice under law for everyone, regardless of the color of their skin. He asked Americans to bridge barriers and work together to help each other succeed.
“Let us honor Dr. King by working to strengthen our communities. Dr. King was a significant champion for volunteering and giving back to our communities, therefore I urge you to join me in honoring his legacy by helping your neighbors and those less fortunate. Through our actions, the work of Dr. King lives on.”
Now in its 13th year, community members can make their “day off” a “day on” with a Day of Service. Celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through meaningful service. This year OneOC will partner with local agencies to offer volunteer opportunities that address critical community issues. There is no better time to get involved and make a difference!
