The Importance of every Third Monday of January

The+Importance+of+every+Third+Monday+of+January

As we enjoyed our day off yesterday its important to also celebrate the meaning behind every third Monday of January, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. King was chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which protested racial discrimination in federal and state law and civil society. He organized a number of peaceful protests as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, including the March on Washington in 1963. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, and, at the time, he was the youngest person to have done so. He passionately advocated for African Americans right to vote, desegregation, labor rights, and other civil rights. We celebrate this day to honor his memory and ideals and this helps us reaffirm our commitment to creating a better future for all.

Some ways you can celebrate this day is by volunteering your time as an act of service, you can research local community Day of Service activities, you can organize a drive, and you can visit local museums, monuments, exhibitions, and celebrations that honor him.
