Martin Luther King Jr. Day | YMCA DC

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther KingJr., 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. Day of Service events. Activities that took place at each branch can be found below.
