MLK Day of Service Events 2019

Posted by: JCRC Staff

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day engaging in tikkun olam together with the diverse communities of our Bay Area. MLK Day of Service events will be held in various locations around the bay.
