Dr. Martin Luther King Junior dedicated his life to advancing civil rights and fighting racism and oppression. To honor his legacy, we will participate in reflective conversations and activities in addition to restoring habitat at Foster Floodplain.
We know that groups often look for service opportunities on Dr. MLK Jr. day, and our organization has long held an event on this day of service.
If you are part of a group that would like to participate, we encourage and will prioritize offering this event to groups who choose to volunteer AND DONATE to a BIPOC led group working for racial justice.
