2018 MLK Day of Service-Create an Event/Voter Registration
The Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday is the perfect opportunity for Americans in all corners of the country to honor Dr. King’s legacy through acts of service and community building. In past years, Organizing for Action volunteers have partnered with local organizations to host community service events. This year, OFA volunteers are also focusing on Dr. King’s vision of a compassionate, fair society — one where everyone’s voice is heard.
For the 2018 MLK Day of Service, in addition to community service events, supporters will be putting on voter registration events to not only provide people with access to an easy way to get themselves registered to vote, but to bring their communities closer together. We believe voter registration events are just one more way we can honor Dr. King’s legacy of fighting for a more fair and inclusive democracy.
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to put on your own event and help give people in your community a chance to get themselves registered to vote.
As we work to make sure that everyone in our communities is able to have their voice heard in the democratic process, these events will be a great way to bring our friends, family, and neighbors together and begin conversations about civic engagement and the issues affecting all of us.
I hope you’ll take the first step, and sign up to put on an event in your area.
