Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Throughout the USA, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his mission to create a more just and equitable society–particularly on the bases of race and socioeconomic class–are remembered, celebrated and supported in manifold ways. For AmeriCorps and GrizzlyCorps members, that means taking “a day on, not a day off.”
With community service & Dr. King’s mission in mind, the RCDs’ AmeriCorps member decided to spend the afternoon by getting outside and cleaning up trash in her neighborhood park. Accessible public green spaces are cherished areas in many communities and can help support physical and mental health, especially in times of stress. This park in particular is frequented by families, athletes and daydreamers–not to mention all the local waterfowl!
