Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

On Monday, January 15, 2024, we honor and reflect on our commitment and shared history towards advancing civil rights for all Americans as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s enduring legacy and influence. Year-round, and especially during this time, we consider the ways in which we as a nation, an organization, and as individuals can be ever-more inclusive and just. At AgLearn and across USDA, we dedicate ourselves to advancing our values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in all we do. In our service to each other and the public, we see, hear, and value all people and treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve.

This year, The King Center set the MLK Day of Service theme as ‘It Starts With Me: Shifting the Cultural Climate Through the Study and Practice of Kingian Nonviolence.’

Join us this MLK Day as we come together to build a Beloved Community through unity, service, and transformation. Let's honor Dr. King's legacy by working toward a more just and equitable society, where everyone is valued and respected, regardless of their race, ability, religion, or background. By participating in service projects, we can bridge divides, heal wounds, and create lasting change that will benefit our communities for years to come.
