Martin Luther King "Day of Service" January 20

Let's come together as a community to serve LGBT homeless youth on the MLK Day of Service. The Human Rights Commissionis organizing MLK Day of Service as a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help bring together people, strengthen communities, and meet national challenges.

One such challenge is homelessness among LGBT youth, who make up to 40% of homeless and at-risk youth. HRC, Casa Ruby, Sasha Bruce, and The DC Center invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting LGBT homeless youth in our D.C. community. There are two ways to participate: first, volunteer and second, donate.

Volunteer
On Monday, January 20, please volunteer with us for a service project at any one of the following locations. Service projects include organizing donated items, organizing or cleaning the facility, painting the facility, or assembling outreach kits for LGBT homeless youth. Sign up to volunteer atCasa Ruby, Sasha Bruce Chloe House or the DC Center.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
