MLK Day of Service

During Barry’s MLK Day of Service, participants will address current social issues affecting Miami’s communities of color, including youth development, public health, and environmental justice. Collectively, they will support local organizations in Liberty City, Little Haiti, and North Miami.
This year’s theme is “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” – the title of the Dr. King’s final book. It was published in 1967, a year before his assassination. In this book, Dr. King reflects on the challenges of the civil rights movement and grapples with what society should do as a result of new freedoms and greater responsibilities.
