“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” – Dr. King


In 1994 Congress implemented the King Day of Service as an initiative to implore Americans to spend the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by partaking in service projects. The City of Santa Clarita will be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year with an initiative that will honor Dr. King’s legacy and encourage the citizens of Santa Clarita to demonstrate kindness and service. The initiative will be comprised of two elements, a video program and a call to perform acts of kindness and service. The initiative is being presented by the City and the newly formed Human Relations Roundtable, chaired by Mayor Miranda and co-chair Dr. Cherise Moore.
