Presidential Inaugural Committee to Join National Day of Service on MLK Day

The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Monday that it will join the National Day of Service on Jan. 18 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, encouraging Americans to volunteer in their communities.

The committee will partner with various service and community leaders across the country to organize events that will focus on COVID-19 relief and address challenges that have been exacerbated by the pandemic, such as poverty, hunger, racial injustice, homelessness, mental health, and educational disparities.

“When Dr. King accepted the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway, he underscored our collective responsibility to strive towards the ‘oughtness’ that confronts us as it does today,” committee CEO Tony Allen said in a press release. “President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris are empathetic leaders who know the crisis millions of American families are facing. And like Dr. King, they know that we must have a shared commitment — in word and in deed — to bring the nation together in service to others.”

Service events will be posted on the Biden Inaugural website in the coming days, the committee said. Organizations interested in hosting an event or supportive service efforts can email serve@bideninaugural.org for more information.
