On January 16th, we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a giant of the Civil Rights movement. Take time today to reflect on the influence of MLK. You can serve your community in the legacy of MLK by attending any of the following events:
- Go to the Boston Common to see the Embrace memorial;
- See works by Black artists for free at the MFA;
- Create a sign that shares a message of freedom, empowerment, and justice in the legacy of MLK on January 16th at 11 a.m. at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
For more events and activities, you can participate in MLK Day and during Black History Month, go to our website.
The Caring Force continues to advocate for a livable wage for the human services sector. The sector is disproportionately staffed by women and people of color compared to other workforces in Massachusetts. We are inspired by the legacy of MLK in his fight for racial and economic justice and will continue to advocate for our essential human service workers.
Have a great Martin Luther King Jr. Day!Back to All Blog Posts
