Today we celebrate the incredible life, legacy, and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In recent years, our nation has taken to promoting one of the central tenets of Dr. King's great life: his dedication to service. Today, NAACP staff, members, and supporters all over the country will participate in Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service opportunities and events in their communities.

Are you one of them? Share photos, stories, or videos of your service experiences today, or this past weekend.

Or if you haven't participated in a service project yet, visit to find an opportunity near you.

Of the chance to serve, Dr. King once said:

Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

And serve, he did. Dr. King was a leader in service to others, to the causes of civil and human rights, and to making the United States a great nation—for all.

We're proud to honor his legacy, today and all days. And we hope you will be a part of it.

Thank you,

Lorraine C. Miller
Interim President and CEO
