Martin Luther King Jr. Week | YMCA DC

Martin Luther King Jr. Week

Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Baptist minister and social rights activist in the United States in the 1950s and ’60s. He was a leader of the American civil rights movement. He organized a number of peaceful protests as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, including the famous March on Washington. Thank you for joining us as we honored his legacy by bringing our communities together in an effort to help people in need through our Martin Luther King Jr. week of virtual service to our community.

This year, our Y is invites you to join The Y Cares. The Y Cares is an initiative to celebrate and uplift hospital and front-line health workers who have been bravely caring for and tending to our neighbors for almost a year now. Additionally, The Y Cares offers an opportunity for community members to send messages of hope, love, and inspiration for COVID-19 patients who have been in isolation from friends, family, and loved ones.

The Y Cares kicks off on M.L.K. Jr. Day (1/18/2021). However, our entire region will commit to a full week of service through Care Messages of hope, joy, and love.

We plan to publicly share messages of hope on our web page. Would you like this message marked anonymous?
