Illinois AmeriCorps Programs MLK Day of Service

Illinois AmeriCorps programs all over the state hosted and co-hosted service projects in their community with the intent of amplifying and encompassing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision and values of the Beloved Community. From community clean-ups to providing intergenerational community events, our programs continuously do their part to create a “community in which everyone is cared for, absent of poverty, hunger, and hate.”
