Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Engagement

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Engagement

Visit Group Website

Each year on the third Monday of January, schools, federal offices, post offices, and banks across America close as we celebrate the birth, the life, and the dream of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King stood against and the rights he stood for: equity, freedom, and dignity. Dr. King furthered his cause through nonviolent direct action protest.

Reed College, like Dr. King, recognizes the power of community engagement. MLK Day of Community Engagement honors Dr. King's legacy by transforming the day off to a day ON. We invite the Reed community to celebrate a day that brings to life our shared mission to build mutually beneficial relationships within the community to foster sustainable and positive change and to develop tools for self-reflection and passion for lifelong community engagement.
