Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Celebrate his legacy through day of service

People are encouraged to spend the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy through service.

Monday, January 15 is a holiday that serves as a call to action. It was promoted in the mid-90s with the slogan “A Day On, Not a Day Off” in order to remind the public about the importance of service on MLK Day.
