Martin Luther King Jr. day is coming on January 20th, 2020, and that day, thousands of people will celebrate the late civil rights campaigner’s legacy. As a top-rated provider of church bus rental in Philadelphia, PA, we’ve listed some ways to make your school, church, or nonprofit’s celebrations meaningful.
Study King Jr.’s Speeches
For certain groups, it would be beneficial to delve deeper into the study of some of Martin Luther King Jr.’s lesser-known writings and speeches. A great starting point would be his 1964 Nobel Prize Peace Address. King highlighted “poverty of spirit which stands in the glaring contrast of scientific and technological abundance.” As we still have political polarization and economic inequality prevalent in the world today, it’s worth revisiting his vision to help change society for the better.
Organize or Take Part in a Giving March
Martin Luther King was devoted to forming a diverse and respectful community. You can take his day of celebration as a chance to leave your comfort zone and interact with people you have never been involved with before. A giving march is easy to organize, all you need is to ask for donations from your church, school, or nonprofit, then decide on a route on which to hand out items and spread joy. You could end your march at a housing shelter to help out the less fortunate in your community.
