We are One: MLK Day of Service

Today, President Elect Obama is calling for a day of service to commemorate Martin Luther King Day. You can visit USA Service to see a list of service project in your neighborhood, and for my area, many of them said that they were filled to the capacity already.  I received emails and text messages about this from the campaign.  Yesterday, during the free inauguration kick off concert on HBO, this campaign was referenced several times as well. It's really amazing to see this administration making such widely organized efforts and getting a national response.

If you would like to participate but don't have time today, you can take the Anti-Defamation League Online Pledge to Combat Prejudice.  The most fitting honor we can pay Dr. King on his birthday is to recommit ourselves to the principals of social justice for which he gave his life.  On this National Day of Service, the Anti-Defamation League challenges individuals, families and communities to take a pledge to combat prejudice.  Read and sign the ADL pledge online and join a community of thousands who are committed to standing together against hate.
