Martin Luther King Day of Service

Washington DC – Initiated by Congress in 1994, King Day of Service builds on his legacy of nonviolence and social justice by transforming the federal holiday honoring Dr. King into a national day of community service. In order to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s extraordinary vision and the incoming administration’s commitment to volunteerism, NIAC staff and volunteers will be participating in volunteer projects in the DC Metropolitan area.

There is nothing more rewarding than to finding a way to devote your time, energy and compassion to help your neighbors and give back to your community. From reading to a child to working in a food bank to visiting the elderly, there are countless ways to touch the hearts and lives of those around you. Give your time to increase the influence of the Iranian-Americans in your local communities and help those close to you.

NIAC DC staff and interns will be volunteering in the DC/VA area.
