Martin Luther King, Jr., birthday

Here are some things you could do to use today for a day on, not a day off:

  • Check out the MLK Day of Service website
  • Join the NAACP, American GI Forum, or another organization that works on behalf of equal rights
  • Donate to the United Negro College Fund or other scholarship organizations
  • Donate to your local legal-services organization
  • Schedule time to do something for your community, block it out on your calendar, and say no to other commitments during that time
  • Talk with your neighbors about how to make your community a more humane, welcoming place

Anyone want to add other ideas?
