Special Event Details
MLK Jr. Service Week 2023
Dates: 1/16/2023 - 1/20/2023
Join us in-person, in celebration, service and learning, to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The week of January 16, United Way for Greater Austin will host a series of community activities.
Join us for community service opportunities on Monday, January 16:
9 am - 12 pm: Southwest Williamson County Regional Park for a morning community cleanup in Williamson County.
1:30 - 3:30 pm: Gus Garcia District Park for an afternoon community cleanup in Travis County.
1:30 - 3:30 pm: Six Square: Austin's Black Cultural District will guide us as we explore the Austin area that was originally created to segregate the Black community in 1928. Learn about East Austin, and how this neighborhood played a critical role in forming this city that we know today. The walk starts at The George Carver Museum, and lunch will be provided.
Just as Dr. King believed in standing up for racial justice, we know our mission to eradicate poverty can't advance without fighting racism and inequality. United, we can create a community where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Join us and Live United!
and all of our event sponsors.
