MLK Day of Service Events 2021

Posted by: JCRC Staff

While greatly diminished this year due to shelter-in-place restrictions related to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, many groups are still finding ways to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day engaging in tikkun olam together with the diverse communities of our Bay Area.

These MLK Day of Service events will be held virtually and safely in a few locations around the Bay.
