MLK Day of Service with Marshall School of Business & LA Works
January 16, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm PST
The Marshall Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) is the signature sponsor for the L.A. Works Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on Monday, January 16, 2023, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
We invite you to kick off 2023 in service at the largest volunteer event in Los Angeles, commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy. In 1964, at the LA Memorial Coliseum, Dr. King addressed 15,000 Angelenos on the issues of race relations and human dignity.
Please join us and L.A. Works in honoring Dr. King’s legacy by taking collective action in the fight for food and climate justice on this national holiday.
Events and activities include:
- Food Festival + Nonprofit Fair – Participants will enjoy a sampling of vegan and sustainable foods hosted by local vendors and learn about how to get involved with local nonprofits that are combating the impact of climate change on our communities.
- Panel Discussion – In a discussion moderated by filmmaker Jasmine Leyva (The Invisible Vegan), volunteers will hear from expert BIPOC voices in the climate movement.
- Volunteer Activities – A series of eco-action stations to create environmentally friendly projects, including creating urban greening kits, engaging in a tree planting pledge, assembling disaster preparedness kits, and building native plant boxes.
