Ideas for Change on MLKJ Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. preached about justice, empowerment, love and peace.
Dr. King believed life’s most persistent and urgent question was
‘What are you doing for others?’
Through his nonviolent activism during the civil rights movement, he changed things for others.
Today offers an opportunity to reflect on the past, think about the present, plan for the future, and reminds us of what is truly important.
Here are some ways to honor Dr. King and impact change in your community.
- Organize a Book and School Supply Drive
- Plant trees in your neighborhood
- Organize a Fitness Event
- Write Letters to Troops

Whatever you choose to do today, I leave you with one of my favorite King quotes:
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
